Abstract

Bone scintigraphy is the only imaging technique able to demonstrate organ function rather than anatomical details. It involves intravenous injection of a radiopharmaceutical that binds to the bone structures and display alteration in osteoblastic activity. It is commonly used in horses presented...

Abstract

There is good correlation between increased radiopharmaceutical uptake anywhere in the feet of sports or leisure horses and the presence of foot pain. However, low sensitivity of scintigraphy for identifying lesions contributing to foot pain as determined by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has...

Abstract

Skeletal scintigraphy is an established imaging modality, however, its validity as a diagnostic test in lame or poorly performing sports horses has not been determined. The objective of this retrospective cross-sectional analytical study was to determine the accuracy of skeletal scintigraphy as an...

Abstract

Background: Positron emission tomography (PET) is a cross-sectional, functional imaging modality that has recently become available to the horse. The use of 18F-sodium fluoride (18F-NaF), a PET bone tracer, has not previously been reported in this species. Objectives: To assess the feasibility of ...

Abstract

CASE DESCRIPTION: Over a 2-year period, 6 horses (4 Selle Français, 1 Hanoverian, and 1 Thoroughbred) were referred for evaluation of forelimb lameness. All horses had radiographic evidence of synostosis of the first and second ribs (SFSR). CLINICAL FINDINGS: For 1 horse, the SFSR was considered...

Abstract

This study was performed to evaluate the systemic short-term effects of tiludronate intravenous infusion on serum biochemical variables when administered as one single-dose in horses that undergo bone scintigraphy within 24 to 36 hours prior to treatment. Thirty-eight horses were enrolled in the...

Abstract

Scintigraphy of the processus spinosi is a standard procedure for the evaluation of horses with back pain. The scintigraphic evaluation is based on a subjective or semi-quantitative analysis of areas with increased radiopharmaceutical uptake. The first part of this retrospective, analytical thesis...
