ULTRASONOGRAPHY

 

The practice runs three ultrasound scanners enabling reproduction/fertility scanning as well as musculo-skeletal and abdominal imaging.

Ultrasound scans are often used in lameness cases for assessing and evaluating the extent of damage to tendons and ligaments as well as being able to look further into wounds.

 

Other uses would be to assess joint surfaces, fractures and soft tissue swellings.

 

It is often used in broodmares for assessing a mares oestrous cycle for pregnancy preparation, pregnancy diagnosis and early detection of twin pregnancies.

We would sometimes use the ultrasound to investigate what could be causing abdominal problems such as colic and weight loss.
