Nuclear scintigraphy


The CIRALE has been the first center in France to provide nuclear scintigraphy in 2001.

Bone scanning is performed on over 100 horses per year as a part of a lameness examination. We have a GE gamma camera mounted on an equine dedicated homemade gantry that permits imaging of the entire horse. The procedure is carried out under sedation. Horses undergoing this examination need to be hospitalised for at least 48 hours following injection with the radioactive drug. (See more information in FAQ's)
