Main Content

Our practice has some of the most advanced digital radiography equipment available. The state-of-the-art IDEXX EquiView® Direct Digital Laptop Radiography Systems for Equine patients. This system provides high detail digital images.

Laptop Radiography
Scan of the leg


The great advantages of this system compared to the traditional film radiographs are the detail, the option of manipulation of the images and fast processing without the need of manual developing of the film using chemicals in a dark room. Inadequate images can be accepted or deleted immediately and re-taken if necessary. Second visits for image re-taking and veterinarian and client’s unnecessary time usage and expenses are eliminated. Prognosis is discussed and treatment can be immediately initiated (photo).

review of the x-ray
This technology permits us to develop the picture in such a way that with a single exposure, and then “playing” with the settings we can put detail on a particular bone and then with further reprocessing we can put detail in another part of the bone, saving time and exposing our patients and staff to less radiation. We also can manipulate the pictures to see soft tissue and bone as well in the same image. This is very useful, for laminitic cases, because we are able to correct the image to show up any fluid or gas within the hoof capsule, without massively underexposing the bone. The results of the study can be retrieved right away in your farm. The cassette is connected by a cable to the computer which permits an instant view of the taken picture. Also due to capacity of picture manipulation by changing contrast, brightness and zooming, is possible to take pictures of body parts that would be difficult to obtain with regular X-rays films such as spinous processes of the back, shoulder or pelvis of a 300 Lb foal. The images are stored on a DICOM system, enabling radiographs to be visualized on any computer of the practice, or by burning a CD for the Veterinarian or the Owner. 

It was a stroke of luck to have met Jessica Hardy, in Belize, who had worked for Dr. Rullan and staff. Meeting Dr. Rullan is the difference in our young horse Paco living or having to be put down. On a very busy day, Dr. Rullan took his time to sit down and review Paco's history and photos., then devise a medical program to start. The staff at Performance Equine was also very professional, friendly, and helpful, from the first phone call in setting up the initial appointment to meeting them in person and to creating the vet medical charts, etc.
