An accurate lameness diagnosis is dependent upon obtaining clear, high-quality diagnostic images and precise, experienced interpretation of those images. Atlantic Equine Services has the latest in advanced digital x-ray and ultrasound capabilities available to provide clear, diagnostic images on the farm.
DIGITAL X-RAY (RADIOGRAPHS)
Digital x-rays have revolutionized our ability to make a clear, accurate diagnosis of your horse at the farm. We have the latest in digital x-ray equipment needed to take high-quality radiographs whether it is part of a lameness workup, or as part of a pre-purchase examination.
Digital ultrasound is another important tool for accurately diagnosing lameness conditions in your horse. High quality ultrasound and skilled veterinarians can detect even subtle tendon and ligament injuries and catch a problem before it becomes severe.
Our veterinarians are highly trained and skilled at image acquisition and interpretation.
They also often provide second opinions to each other and to outside colleagues on interesting or difficult cases.
Additionally our network of close colleagues includes board certified radiologists and their opinion is seeked when needed.
