Nuclear Scintigraphy

Nuclear Scintigraphy (bone scan) is a diagnostic imaging modality used for lameness diagnosis, tumor identification, infectious processes, and vascular disorders.  By injecting our patient with Technetium 99-MDP, the source of lameness can be found when other methods have not.  Horses with multiple limb lameness, normal radiographs and/or ultrasound, or spine and pelvis abnormalities benefit from a nuclear scan.  It is non-invasive, does not require general anesthesia, and is far more sensitive than more traditional imaging modalities.

Our clinicians have also used nuclear medicine to identify tumors of the thyroid and adrenal glands, bone, and the brain.  Infectious processes such as osteomyelitis (bone infection) or intraabdominal abscesses can also be identified when the patients own white blood cells are bound to Technetium.

We also offer our nuclear medicine services to small animals, welcoming referrals from the attending veterinarian.

Radiation therapy can also be used in the treatment of tumors such as squamous cell carcinoma, hemangiosarcoma, and equine sarcoids.

top priority.

Testimonial

Dr. Burks came out on a weekend when my horse had colic. He was very thorough and was great with my horse as well as decent conversation and didn't make me feel badly when asking questions. Thank you for looking at my boy with such short notice!
