Our ultrasonographic unit, with a 8-12 MHz and a rectal 5 MHz head serves as an essential supplementary diagnostic aid leading to a more exact diagnosis in the field of lameness diagnostic in different areas, as tendons, ligaments, joints and the vertebral column.
Endoscopic examinations on the treadmill
This special diagnostic possibility is essential in diagnosing different dynamic upper airway diseases. The „Mustang 2200 High Speed“ treadmill can provide us the possibility to observe horses in motion, analyse the gait and lameness, measure „fitness“ and guarantee a smooth beginning of the reconvalescence period.
X-rays are performed using the Philips Easy Vision Computed Radiology System. Advantages of the system compared to conventional radiology are the better image quality, and possibilities of post procession storage in digital and printed form.
Computed tomography examinations
Images of the soft and bony structures of the equine head and extremities up to the hock and carpus can be provided by the Tomoscan AVPF CT apparatus in several different layers.
The 3D imaging is essential for planning difficult orthopedic operations and to visualise special structures.
Around the clock available emergency team (3 vets on duty) during the whole year serves to ensure an undisturbed ER medical attendance. A broad spectrum of planned operations consisting of arthroscopic, laparoscopic, fracture treatment, upper airway, soft tissue, gynaecologic and dental operations with a year by year growing number of patient material plays an important role in gradual education.
