MRI And PET Machines At Santa Anita Identifying Potential Breakdowns

Put into place nearly a year ago, Santa Anita’s use of both the Longmile Positron Emission Tomography (MILE-PET) Scan machine and the standing MRI machine have successfully identified injuries that may become catastrophic, proponents say. The PET machine is used on a standing horse and produces scans that veterinarians hope will detect pre-existing injuries that […]

Standing Ovation: New Scanner At UC Davis Designed For Racehorses

With a goal of bringing imaging technology directly to the racetrack, UC Davis veterinary researchers are helping the horse racing industry to better detect and understand injuries, and ultimately prevent future catastrophic breakdowns. The technology being utilized by the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine is positron emission tomography (PET), and its development continues to […]

Positron Emission Tomography Performed On Standing Horse For First Time

The UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine has achieved another milestone in clinical equine imaging with the first successful use of positron emission tomography (PET) on a standing horse. Equine PET, pioneered at UC Davis with the first horse imaged in April 2015, has until now required patients to be under general anesthesia. The ability […]
