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.
