  • The Mid-Atlantic Equine Medical Center is pleased to offer one computed tomography (CT, or "cat scan") of the carpus, ankle or hock to the 2018 Maryland Million Gala Auction. The team at Mid-Atlantic has spent the past year working on perfecting the image acquisition, with the results being exceptional images obtained in a matter of minutes.In spite of its diagnostic utility, CT imaging has not yet gained mainstream acceptance in equine racing and sporting arenas primarily due to the need for general anesthesia. This system eliminates the risk, time and cost of anesthesia. Images of exquisite detail can be acquired with the horse under light sedation, and more importantly in a weight bearing position, allowing us to diagnose injuries not visible on plain radiographs. Retail Value: $ 1,500. (Donated by Mid-Atlantic Equine Medical Center, midatlanticequine.com)
