The digital images generated by this system of digital radiography offer much more sharpness and resolution than traditional radiographs. The images are easily sent over the internet to facilitate timely consultations with surgeons and radiologists. We continually update and invest in our diagnostic imaging equipment so that we can provide the equine communities of Southern Oregon and Northern California with the best imaging available.
As with digital radiography, we were also the first to provide our region with digital ultrasound for imaging the soft tissues of horses. This greatly advanced our ability to diagnose and properly treat performance problems such as suspensory ligament and flexor tendon injuries, and to examine the deeper structures of the equine chest and abdomen in colic and respiratory conditions.
Recently we added digital videoendoscopy capable of imaging everything from the upper and lower airway to the inside of the stomach. This allows us to directly visualize gastric ulcers in the stomachs of horses, an insidious performance limiting problem that was previously diagnosed only by clinical signs which are often subtle and easily missed.
