Our ambulatory clinicians have access to the latest mobile digital radiographic and ultrasonographic units.
Undertaking radiographic or ultrasonographic examinations in the yard has once again become commonplace, thanks to great improvements in image quality and portability of equipment in recent years.
Mobile imaging may be employed in many situations: some injuries may need to be assessed 'in the field' if it is considered unsafe to travel a horse to a diagnostic facility; in many cases it may be simply more convenient to conduct examinations at home.
Many of our routine radiographic examinations in studs and training yards (including pre-purchase/pre-sale examinations) are undertaken with mobile units (pictured left). It remains the case however that certain types of examination, particularly those involving the upper limb, head, neck or back, still require the use of the higher powered ceiling-mounted unit available at our Diagnostic Centre.
