The options available to the equine veterinary surgeon for advance imaging are now many and varied. Traditional modalities, such as radiography and ultrasonography, still remain the work horses of equine practice, however more advanced technologies such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging have filtered down to equine practice over the last decade and are allowing us to push the boundaries of our diagnostic capabilities even further. The availability of imaging facilities and the expectations of our clients is perhaps exceeding the growth in our knowledge of what all this extra information means to the individual animal, and there is a valid and interesting question here as to what we are calling ‘progress’. We are duty bound to our clients and their insurers to continue to use established and emerging technologies wisely, refer promptly where necessary and employ only those modalities most likely to yield relevant information. The challenge now will be in deciding where in the process of investigation we decide to use these techniques, and how we select cases most appropriately for the each modality.
