Ultrasound examination of a horse can be an effective tool to diagnose soft tissue or bone abnormalities. Certain ultrasound procedures can be difficult to perform but can provide proper diagnostic information to create a treatment plan.

One of our Board-Certified Radiologists will review all the images and submit a final report within 24-48 hours after the acquisition of the ultrasound images. The report and clinical findings will then be sent to the referring veterinarian and client. Clients should follow-up with the referring veterinarian for an explanation of results and information on treatment or management.
