Years of experience has taught us that early, safe and accurate diagnosis is paramount when your horse falls lame. The imaging method of choice in human medicine for many years, MRI offers the same diagnostic capabilities for equine limbs and is considered the gold standard for diagnosing orthopaedic conditions. Proved to be diagnostic in over 90% of cases, Hallmarq’s Standing Equine MRI offers a unique insight into equine lameness.


Why would my horse need MRI?

Often during a lameness workup, your vet will use nerve blocks to locate the area of pain. This may then be followed by x-ray or ultrasound examinations. However, x-ray and ultrasound present a limitation in their ability to assess the limb as a whole. MRI not only allows complete evaluation of soft tissue and bone simultaneously but provides an extremely high level of detail of all structures, enabling more subtle lesions to be clearly visualised where x-ray and ultrasound would fail to identify any problem.
