Using Digital Ultrasound with Horses
Ultrasound uses sound waves to detect differences in tissue density. The adaptation of Ultrasound techniques to equine science has revolutionized the veterinarians ability to diagnose and treat soft tissue injuries. With the use of Ultrasound, it is possible to see inside the soft tissues.Ultrasound allows veterinarians to image a large number of soft tissue structures in the horse.

In an ultrasound, the veterinarian holds a transducer against the horse's body. The transducer emits high-frequency sound waves. The veterinarian slowly moves the transducer over the area being examined. The sound waves bounce off internal tissues and organs. Tissues of different densities reflect sound waves differently. The transducer separates and identifies the sound waves, 'echoes'. The echoes are then converted into electrical energy. Complex equipment uses them to produce video images called sonograms on a computer monitor. Sonograms can be recorded and transmitted.

Common uses of Ultrasound
*Visualize kidneys and capable of ultrasound guided biopsy
*Lungs for pneumonia diagnosis and treatment
*GI for colics - small intestinal distension, large colon wall thickness, peritoneal fluid, diagnosis of abcesses and tumors
*Foals - GI disease, umbilical structures (diagnose umbilical infections), ruptured bladder
*Liver - ultrasound guided biopsy
*Assist with lameness diagnosis, including the extent of tendon and ligament damage
Eyes
*Monitor the mare's reproductive tract and optimize the time for breeding
*The genital tract in stallions
*Early detection of pregnancy
*Early detection of problem pregnancies, including fetal abnormalities
*Cardiovascular
*Ultrasound can be used to image the heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, spleen, and intestines, even during colic episodes.

An ultrasound of a mare's reproductive organs can show an embryo at just 12 to 14 days. In contrast, rectal palpation usually cannot detect pregnancy until 30 to 35 days. By day 25, ultrasound can reveal a heartbeat to verify the presence of a viable fetus.

Equine ultrasound diagnosis requires highly specialized solutions. It is important to understand what you will be using your system for and the capabilities of the solution prior to making a purchase.

Equine Reproduction
●Tendon imaging
requires high resolution, near field scanning along with precise and easy to use measurement tools.
●Abdominal and cardiac imaging requires significant ultrasound penetration to Depths up to 35cm or more.
●Cardiac imaging In addition to requiring excellent Depth, it requires excellent resolution along with advanced imaging features like Color Doppler and deep penetration phased array transducers.

All Equine Application
Breeding
●Recommended Ultrasound
 
Equine Reproduction
The above recommended ultrasound scanner provides very good reproductive imaging as well as tendon imaging at an affordable price.
 
Recommended Probe ( or Transducer)
The 4.0/5.0/6.5/7.5Mhz Linear Transrectal is a versatile probe allowing for maximum penetration and a high resolution,it can also be used for occasional tendon scanning.
 
Equine Abdominal and cardiac imaging
The above recommended digital veterinary ultrasound scanner provides very good tendon imaging at a barGain price and can also be used for reproductive or abdominal scanning. The tendon probe (5-6.5-7.5-9.0 MHz) is your first choice. Additional probes include the high-frequency 4.0/5.0/6.5/7.5 Mhz microconvex probe for the pastern and other hard to image areas, the large convex probe (2.0/2.5/3.5/5.0Mhz for abdominal imaging and a choice two rectal probes (linear or convex) for reproductive scanning.
Probe or Transducer Selection:
The quad-frequency tendon probe (5-6.5-7.5-9.0 MHz) is an excellent imager for equine tendons as well as a secondary probe (after the 4.0/5.0/6.5/7.5 Mhz microconvex probe) for small animal abdominal scanning.
 
This quad-frequency (4.0/5.0/6.5/7.5MHz) linear Transrectal probe is well-suited for overall equine and bovine reproductive scanning. For early pregnancy and occasional tendon scanning, it may be better suited.
 
The large convex probe (2.0/2.5/3.5/5.0Mhz) is a very good imager for large animal abdominal scanning with its 50mm probe head. Also may be used for transabdominal reproductive scanning.
 
This quad-frequency (4.0/5.0/6.5/7.5MHz) microconvex probe is an excellent imager for small animal scanning. Also very good for difficult to image areas on large animals due to the small head Size.
 
Equine Cardiac imaging
Recommended Probe
This quad-frequency (4.0/5.0/6.5/7.5MHz) microconvex probe is an excellent imager for small animal scanning. Also very good for difficult to image areas on large animals due to the small head Size.
 
All Equine Application
Recommended Probe
Large Convex, Linear, Microconvex, Linear Transrectal probes, same as Abdominal and Cardiac
