The Toshiba Aplio i700 – Using Ultrasound for vascular visualization. 


New Bolton Center is a leader in large animal ultrasonography, having established a tradition of clinical excellence in the mid 1980s.

Since its inception, the diagnostic ultrasound service at New Bolton Center has expanded to include not only the evaluation of tendons and ligaments, but also complex joints, wounds, masses, eyes and the entire thorax and abdomen.

Ultrasound as a Diagnostic Tool

Ultrasound has become an integral part of evaluating the lame horse, the horse with colic, the high-risk pregnant mare and the sick neonatal foal. It is used to guide biopsies and injections, improving the accuracy and safety of these procedures over ‘blind’ techniques.

The ultrasound service at New Bolton Center has specialized ultrasound equipment and dedicated facilities that are not available in the ambulatory setting. Together with the extensive expertise of the ultrasound clinicians, these factors allow for the highest quality ultrasound images, accurate diagnoses and treatment recommendations.

For information or to schedule an appointment, please call 610-444-5800.

Appointments may be made by the owner, trainer or referring veterinarian.

Vascular Visualization

The Toshiba Aplio i800, New Bolton Center’s new ultrasound machine, enables visualization of micro-vascular flow never before seen with diagnostic ultrasound.

“We’re entering a whole new generation of image clarity and detail,” said Dr. Virginia Reef. “We can now look at tiny vessels to see if there is blood flow in tissues that we could never see before. This is really useful for cases that are more challenging to diagnose.”
