Mobile Digital Imaging

Digital Radiography

Digital radiography has revolutionised the radiographs we can produce. The superior quality and ability to manipulate the image allows us to assess and diagnose problems that previously would have been missed by plain film. We have highly trained vets and nurses who pride themselves in producing outstanding images.

We have several portable x-ray machines which enable us to take radiographs at the stall side. This is particularly useful to assess injuries ‘in the field’ if it is considered unsafe to transport the horse, or it may just be more convenient than travelling the horse to the clinic. The digital images produced can be viewed immediately by the vet. The pictures are then uploaded onto a central database allowing them to be read on our dedicated x-ray reading screens at the Randwick Clinic.

Yearling survey and repository radiographs: We have dedicated teams of vets to take yearling series either at the clinic or stud farm. Our specialised veterinarians can also read and assess the images on request. Please contact the clinic for further information.
 
Pre-purchase examinations: Radiography can be used as part of pre-purchase examinations either for particular areas of concern or for routine joint surveys.Certain types of examination however, particularly those involving the thorax, abdomen, skull, spine and upper limb, still require the use of the higher powered ceiling-mounted unit  available at our Randwick Clinic.

 

 

 

Ultrasonography

Randwick Equine Centre offers ultrasonography (ultrasound scans) both in the field and clinic. We have three portable scanners including a specialised reproductive scanner that can be utilized in an ambulatory setting as required.

This imaging technique is extremely useful for imaging many soft tissue structures.

We routinely use ultrasound for the following:

  • Tendon and ligament injury assessment
  • In colic cases to assess the gastrointestinal tract and other abdominal organs
  • In cardiac, pleural and pulmonary (lung) diseases
  • For reproductive scans
  • To image the larynx (throat) for additional information in upper airway disease  
  • The clinic offers a state of the art machine with Doppler for cardiovascular assessment
