Diagnostic imaging Owner Factsheet

There are a variety of different imaging modalities used every day in equine veterinary practice. They are used to assess the type and severity of injury in both bone and soft tissue structures of the musculoskeletal system. Most equine practices have radiography and ultrasonography equipment available. Larger clinics and referral centres often have more advanced imaging modalities such as gamma scintigraphy, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
