Making Equine Ultrasound Safe and Affordable For Breeders

In this section of the site, I am going to walk you step-by-step through a simple yet solid work flow on the CTS-5500V+ Equine/Bovine Ultrasound.

Each page will consist of an image of the console and some written notes (and eventually an audio player with added tips and suggestions).

I strongly recommend going through this training at your kitchen table, simply imaging your neck or wrist, and rehearsing the total work flow a dozen times or more, to really get solid on the steps of operating the system itself, before taking it out to work with one of your mares. Think of it as learning to drive a stick-shift car. You want to get the steps mastered, in order, so you can stop worrying about the vehicle and simply enjoy the scenery.

So let’s get started … Work through each of the sections below, in the order they appear, and then go back and review as necessary. And practice!


First some preliminaries on setting up your system …

1.) Setting Up Your System
2.) A Few Words on the Probe
3.) Initial Configuration
4.) Putting In a Horse’s Name (and ID)

And then two larger sections on the recommended work flow …
