Services - GVEC LLC
GVEC recently purchased a direct capture radiograph machine (also known as “digital radiography”, or “DR”). This fabulous technology also allows us to radiograph your horse at your farm. The image is captured on a computerized panel and can be seen within seconds on a laptop computer screen, right in the barn. This eliminates the delay in diagnosis, which is especially critical in the case of a fracture, as well as “re-takes”. If we are not happy with the quality or position of a view, we can re-take the radiograph immediately.
Radiography is the best imaging modality for bones. GVEC's four ambulatory trucks are always equipped with portable radiographic equipment, allowing us to image many of your horse's bones at your farm. The films we take are brought back to our clinic to be developed and reviewed, and then a diagnosis and treatment plan can be instituted.
