Standing equine MRI can image structures along the entire distal limb, from the foot to the carpus (knee) or tarsus (hock). Images are taken as slices through the limb, at an angle and position determined by the system operator. By positioning images either parallel or orthogonal to key structures any abnormalities are clearly revealed with no superposition. Images are taken with one of (normally) three different types of contrast, allowing the reading radiologist to distinguish different lesions from their characteristics over a balance of different contrasts and locations.
