2. Foot and pastern
THE foot and pastern of the horse must be the most frequently implicated region in terms of lameness. Recent years have seen an increase in the use of, and some confusion in the interpretation of, diagnostic (intra-articular and perineural) analgesia in this region. With this in mind, and the fact that improved ultrasonographic facilities and sporadic availability of magnetic resonance imaging have not reduced the demand for high quality diagnostic radiographs of the foot and phalanges, it is important that veterinary surgeons in equine practice keep abreast of developments in radiographic techniques. This article discusses ways of enhancing radiography of this region and provides examples of radiological conditions frequently seen in practice.
