1

CT is good to look at head, neck and distal extremities of horses?

true

2

Scintigraphy

enables rapid screening of patient for increased or decreased bone metabolic activity
also soft tissue scan where hot spots of increased activity attributed to greater blood supply and inflammation

3

Large animal diseases are commonly immune mediated or neoplasia?

No, both of those are rare in large animals

4

4 views required to look at equine joints?

lateromedial
dorsopalmar(plantar)
DMPLO
DLPMO

5

Dorsopalmar view hilights

medial and lateral aspect

6

Lateromedial view hilights

dorsal and palmar aspects

7

DMPLO view hilights

dorsolateral and medialpalmar

8

DLPMO view hilights

dorsomedial and lateralpalmar

9

To ensure technical quality of image of distal extremities

remove shoes
clean lateral sulci
pack with moldable material

10

The most commonly affected joint in horses with hindlimb lameness is

the tarsus

11

the lateral trochlear ridge can be identified by the

large notch at its distal aspect

12

The calcaneus of the tarsus is

lateral

13

Most common location of osteochondrosis in the tarsus is

intermediate ridge of the distal tibia (DIRT)

14

Best view to see osteochondrosis in DIRT of tarsus is

DMPLO

15

What is Bone Spavin

degenerative joint disease of the tarsus

Accessory carpal bone is

lateral

20

Step formation in carpus seen in which view?

DLPMO

21

Splints of metacarpal/-tarsal

periosteal reaction and possible synostosis of metacarpal/-tarsal bones

22

Crena marginis solearis

smooth rounded concavity of distal phalanx solar margin (more prominent in hindlimb)

seven

24

What shape synovial invagination is bad

lollipop shape

25

irregular synovial invaginations could indicate navicular disease?

yes
