Pastern
Instructor: TBD

Ultrasound of the equine metacarpal region has long been one of the most commonly examined regions in the horse. This is due to a variety of common problems that affect this region and due to the easy accessibility of the region to ultrasound.

In this station, we will learn about general ultrasound imagery of soft tissue structures in this region, but more importantly, we will also discuss the subtleties of both normal and abnormal ultrasound findings from horse to horse. We will also discuss ultrasound-guided injections in these regions.
