GE’s ultrasound is on hand for Olympic horses

A purpose-built veterinary clinic in Greenwich has been kitted out with state-of-the-art equipment to treat competing horses from every nation during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The clinic is equipped with two GE ultrasound machines including the GE Logiq e for musculoskeletal and abdominal scanning.  These machines were commissioned to meet the need for pre-set equipment and supplied and supported by BCF Technology.

Professor of Equine Orthopaedics at the Royal Veterinary College Roger Smith is a frequent user of GE imaging equipment and one of the specialists working at the equine clinic during the Games.  He said: “The GE equipment used at the clinic is essential for evaluating the tendon and ligament injuries to which competition horses are prone. The quality of the images it produces helps us decide on the best possible treatment for the horse, giving it the greatest chance of full recovery.”
