This involves a fairly standard X-ray generator (with a small computer attached) but instead of exposing a film that needs to be exposed and developed in chemicals, the picture is recorded digitally on a lap-top, via a specialised plate which converts the picture into a digital image instantly. 

This allows fast viewing, ensuring we have captured the area we want and it also gives very high detail allowing manipulation of the image when on a computer. This all helps diagnosis in complicated cases. The unit we use is one of the best, the same one being used by Liphook veterinary equine specialists and by Liverpool University vet school. Your horses are worth the investment!
