Digital Ultrasound

The Infinity Equine ambulatory vehicle is equipped with powerful ultrasound equipment that is capable of imaging everything from superficial distal limb structures, such as tendons, ligaments and joints, deeper structures such as sacroiliac joints and muscles, to other structures such as the eyes, lungs, heart, liver, spleen, gastrointestinal tract, reproductive tract and the developing fetus!

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.

One of the benefits to diagnostic ultrasound is that it is a non-invasive procedure that can be used for multiple purposes, such as diagnosing injuries or causes of illness. Additionally, it can be used to facilitate the proper location of injections or biopsies.
