Ultrasound is a flexible imaging technique that can be used to visualise soft tissues such as limb tendons, eyes, abdominal and thoracic organs.

Colour flow Doppler echocardiography is also available for cardiac assessment.

Our equine ultrasound facilities feature two of the best machines on the market: the Logic VIVID-7 and VIVID-i.

They are powerful enough to image deep structures such as the heart, kidney, liver and intestines and can take highly accurate measurements. Specialists at the hospital interpret the images, which are digitally processed and stored.
