What is MRI?

  • MRI is a diagnostic imaging modality that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. In many cases, MRI gives different information about structures in the body than cannot be seen with an X-ray, ultrasound, or computed tomography (CT) scan.
  • Nowadays, MRI is the preferred modality for imaging of soft tissue pathology (disease).

What parts of the Horse can be scanned with our Equine MRI?

  • Legs
    • up to the level of the distal radius including the carpus (knee)
    • and the distal tibia including the tarsus (hocks)

  • Remember most of the lameness in the horse is usually localized to their feet!!!

  • When to utilize MRI:
    • When lameness is localized to a specific region (e.g. foot, fetlock, suspensory ligament, and other regions)
    • When diagnosis cannot be made from X-rays, ultrasound, bone scan or CT scans.

  • Advantages
    • Superior soft tissue contrast
    • Superior cartilage detail
    • Superior anatomical definition
    • Superior assessment of bone activity
    • Better Diagnosis: (90%) of the time a specific diagnosis can be made
      • Leading to better treatments options and decreased convalescence times
      • And an overall significant reduction in total cost of treatment(s)
