Digital Radiography

In equine veterinary medicine, radiographs are most often used during lameness evaluations, although structures such as the sinuses and teeth are also easily visualized!  Radiography is the process of evaluating the body with x-rays.  The radiographic images allow the veterinarian to visualize boney structures in the target area, providing information that facilitates reaching a diagnosis.

Digital Ultrasound

Ultrasound is the process of evaluating the body using high frequency sound waves to produce images. The sound waves are transmitted via a handheld transducer and are bounced or “echoed” off underlying structures. The “echoed” waves are received by the ultrasound transducer and compiled by the machine into a real time diagnostic image.
