Videos of Hallmarq Standing Equine MRI

MRI is a powerful diagnostic tool, used extensively in human and veterinary medicine for orthopaedic and neurological diagnosis. In the horse it is commonly used for certain forms of lameness originating in the foot up to and including the knee (carpus) and hock (tarsus).

Alternative Equine MRI options

Take a look at the videos below to see the alternative equine MRI options. These high field magnets are tubular shaped and so the horse must be anaesthetised prior to scanning in order to fit inside magnet.

Hallmarq Educational Video Series

Hallmarq has produced a series of short educational videos aimed at veterinarians. These videos are extracts from a talk given by Sarah Powell MA VetMB Assoc. (LA) ECVDI MRCVS to local vets at the opening of the Standing Equine MRI at Rainbow Equine Hospital Yorkshire. Please select the individual sections of interest below or follow the "up next" links in the top right hand corner of YouTube to see parts 2-9 which cover the following topics:

SP vid Part 1

Part 1 introduces Equine MRI and tries to establish what our end goal is when using this modality.

Part 2 - Which cases will and won't benefit from Standing Equine MRI.

Part 3 - Outlines the best practice for getting the most out of your Hallmarq Standing Equine MRI system.
Part 4 - Discusses common injuries to the Navicular and Pedal bones, and how we can use MRI to visualise them.

Part 5 - How Standing Equine MRI can be utilised to image the coffin joint's articular cartilage, and when to consider cartilage degeneration in your differential diagnosis.

Part 6 - Many injuries to the Deep Digital Flexor Tendon occur where it passes over the navicular bone before attaching deep within the foot. This region is only visible via MRI, which is why it has become the gold standard for these injuries (as well as many others). Hear how Sarah Powell diagnoses, monitors and manages these cases.

Part 7 - Focuses on the collateral ligaments of the foot. These are hard to image due to their location in the foot, and hard to interpret since even healthy ones vary widely in size and appearance. Sarah examines the reasons for and against considering the collateral ligaments in your investigation and talks about the diagnosis and treatment of their injuries.

Part 8 - There will be horses for whom MRI is not an option, but these patients can still benefit from knowledge gained from comparing MRI scans to radiographs.

Part 9 - What can we hope to achieve with Standing MRI in the future, as well as the aspects of care which will still remain essential.
