Ultrasound technology has progressed rapidly over the past 20 years. Green Glen Equine Hospital utilizes a state of the art ultrasound unit, allowing our veterinarians to view a high-resolution image of your horse to aide in an accurate diagnosis. Initially used to evaluate tendons and ligaments of the horse’s leg, diagnostic ultrasound technology has expanded to include the examination of other soft tissue structures (organs within) of the chest and abdomen, as well as vascular flow and Doppler through these structures. During your horse’s ultrasound exam, images and short video clips will be stored as part of your horse’s medical record. The still images may also be copied to a CD or emailed to referring veterinarians. Best of all, it allows you, our client, to participate in reviewing the images and take an involved role in understanding your horses health.
