Ultrasound allows us to look at soft tissue structures.
We use it for scanning ligament and tendon injuries and areas of concern relating to joints and muscles. It is invaluable not only in confirming these types of injuries but also in allowing us to monitor their healing and to form rest and rehabilitation plans.
Ultrasound is used to evaluate brood mares’ reproductive cycles, pregnancy detection and twinning and to help detect abscesses, cysts or tumours in the abdomen. It can also be used to further examine soft tissue swellings as well as in examining the heart.
Ultra sound along with x-raying is also used to help in joint injections to make sure the needle is put into the correct area.
Bourton Vale hosted a client evening at the Adlestrop Village Hall on Wednesday 1st Novewmber. The evening was kindly sponsored by Boehringer Ingleheim and was a huge success; allowing attendees to meet the new members of our team and have an introduction to a variety of topics.
