In my view UTC imaging offers new perspectives in the non-invasive characterization of equine tendon tissue. In the Equine Clinic of the University of Veterinary Medicine in Hannover we use it to monitor tendon injuries after different forms of intralesional treatment. Including client owned horses into scientific studies has become much easier, as the use of UTC imaging is more than well accepted by clients. At the same time it helps to design individual rehabilitation programmes.
