Not all maladies can be diagnosed with the same instrument! At Russell Equine, we are equiped with digital radiography, digital ultrasound, and fiberoptic endoscopy to be sure that we get the information we need to properly diagnose your horse's condition
Russell Equine offers the latest in digital radiograph technology through the use of both the Cuattro Slate 3 and Uno systems. With the flexibility of wireless technology and the quality of true DR digital imaging, we are able to take radiographs either in the clinic or at your barn. From there, we are able to see the images right away while still next to your horse and evaluate to make sure we have all the images we need to make a proper diagnosis. In cases where a surgery is recommended that we cannot perform, we are able to send your horse's xrays to referral facilities anywhere in the world and can download the images onto a memory stick so you can keep a copy for your horse's records.
When it comes to ultrasound imaging, Russell Equine has three ultrasound machines to meet needs ranging from tendon ultrasound to reproductive ultrasound, to needle guidance in procedures!
For our tendon, ligament, and sports medicine ultrasound needs we turn to the GE MyLab 30. With the MyLab 30 it is possible to obtain high level imaging of tendon and ligament injuries- so there is never a doubt in diagnosis.
For reporductive services we have two Aloka systems. The workhorse of equine medicine, the Aloka machines offer the ability to track your mare's cycle and breed more efficiently- increasing our success rate.
Russell Equine offers 4 endoscopes for respiratory observation, including the latest acquisition of a battery powered "in & out" endoscope designed for quick and convenient diagnosis or respiratory issue regardless of power availability.
