Digital Ultrasound

Specialists at the Equine Medical Center use digital ultrasound to evaluate the heart, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, abdominal organs, eyes, muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and bone surfaces. Our state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment provides:

  • A safe and accurate guide to obtain biopsies from diseased organs, such as the liver, kidneys, and lungs, and minimizes the risk of injuring adjacent vital structures.
  • A guide for extracorporeal shock wave therapy, which delivers high-pressure pulses of acoustic wave energy to injured tendons, ligaments, and bones to stimulate healing and to provide pain relief.
  • Assistance in minimally invasive surgery on tendons, ligaments, and muscle.
