Advanced Diagnostics Services

The proper diagnosis is crucial to having the best outcome for your horse’s issue. A thorough history and hands on physical examination using standard equipment are the most important early steps in reaching a diagnosis or deciding which imaging modalities would be most helpful. When imaging is required, EVSMC  utilizes the most advanced diagnostic equipment available. The use of digital technology allows for superior imaging quality in both radiology, ultrasound and endoscopy. Images can be evaluated for proper technique, exposure and viewed in real time. This greatly increases our diagnostic accuracy and decreases time to treatment.

Our practice uses the following state of the art diagnostic equipment daily:

  •  Digital Radiology allowing for ultra-high resolution radiographic studies.

  • Digital Ultrasound allows us to perform high resolution musculoskeletal as well as cardiac, abdominal, thoracic and ophthalmic studies. The this sound system performs B mode as well as color flow doppler and pulsed wave doppler for superior cardiovascular studies.
  • Video-Endoscopy and Gastroscope gives the ability to preform upper airway, bronchoscopy, gastroscopy as well as urogenital evaluations with our Pentax system and scope selection. Video-Endoscopy allows for a much brighter higher resolution image then standard fiber-optic endoscopy.

  • Lameness Locator gait analysis system by Equinosis. The Lameness Locator® was developed at the Missouri’s Colleges of Veterinary Medicine and Engineering after 20 years of cumulative research. The Lameness Locator® is a system that enables a veterinarian to objectively identify lameness in horses. The system provides an analysis that indicates whether the horse is lame, an amplitude of the severity of the lameness, the limb or limbs involved, and the part of the motion cycle at which peak pain is occurring (impact, mid-stance, or push off).

  • Diagnostic Arthroscopy evaluation is used to help diagnose joint disease; especially injury to soft tissue structures that will not show up with traditional radiography (such as meniscal or cruciate injuries in the stifle). Arthroscopy a minimally invasive surgical application in which the surgeon is able to visualize, diagnose and treat problems within various joints.
