Project description

The imaging evaluation of the dorso-proximal aspect of the equine fetlock joint represents a diagnostic challenge in Belgian Warmblood horses. The aim of the present study is to improve our diagnostic capabilities by improving our knowledge of the anatomical features of this region on radiography, ultrasonography and artroscopy using macroscopic findings and histopathology as the gold standard.
