OBJECTIVE To compare the orthogonal radiographic (OR) and computed tomographic (CT) appearance of paired Thoroughbred racehorse limbs with severe condylar fracture. STUDY DESIGN In vitro study. SAMPLE POPULATION Cadaveric paired limbs with severe condylar fracture (n=11 horses). METHODS Four standard radiographic and multiple transverse CT images were obtained of the fractured and contralateral limbs centering on the metacarpo/metatarsophalangeal (fetlock) joints. Radiographs and CT… CONTINUE READING
