Ultrasound technology has advanced in leaps and bounds over the last few years and this has had a huge positive impact on veterinary diagnostic imaging across all species. Ultrasonography has long been a key tool in the diagnostic investigation of equine musculoskeletal disorders, and slightly more recently has facilitated great advances in the field of equine reproduction.
As technology continues to develop the possibilities for the use of ultrasound as a diagnostic tool will expand, and increasing affordability of high quality equipment should help drive this. Below are some things to consider regarding the use of ultrasonography in equine practice, including its potential applications and the equipment required.
