When horses experience a decrease in their athletic performance, it could indicate an injury or an underlying disease. Imaging plays a central role in accurately and rapidly diagnosing the problem.

Our Imaging Service is one of the select few in the country offering the full-range of imaging services with advanced technology and a team of board-certified radiologists and dedicated equine ultrasongraphers.

Our board-certified clinicians work in collaboration with our radiologists to interpret images in real time for a swift and accurate diagnosis enabling them to solve both common and puzzling cases. Tufts Equine Center is fully equipped with digital radiography, fluoroscopy, a dedicated equine ultrasound suite, nuclear medicine, a Helical Multislice CT unit and the only 1.5 high-strength Tesla Magnet Resonance Imaging (MRI) unit in New England. In addition to offering imaging services within the hospital, we also provide consultations to referring veterinarians who are seeking a second option on their own medical imaging studies.

All of our images are acquired and stored digitally and can be transferred easily to referring veterinarians and horse owners in digital or printed format. We are always available to discuss with horse owners and veterinarians the type of imaging scan that will work best for their individual needs.
