About this course

Have you ever wondered how vets decide whether to use x-rays, ultrasound, CT, scintigraphy, MRI or a combination of these to investigate a lame horse? This lecture will show you which imaging technology is the most appropriate for different lameness problems, and how each can be used to identify the cause of pain in limping horses.

The lecture will also explore the role of inertia sensor technology in diagnosing lameness – how it has developed and on which cases it is used most effectively. We will bring in audience participation with voting buttons so you can compare your ability to spot lameness with the machine! We will also explore where things may go in the future, including developments being pioneered at the RVC.
