REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY Use of physiological methods of diagnostic imaging could provide insight into the pathogenesis of foot pain in live horses. OBJECTIVES To describe patterns and intensity of increased radiopharmaceutical uptake (IRU) in the navicular bone, and relate this to distribution and types of signal intensity change in the navicular bone and to the presence or absence of lesions of the related soft tissue structures detected using MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS Scintigraphic… CONTINUE READING
