ABSTRACT


The investigations were carried
out on 3.5 years old 20 half-bred horses. The measurements were made during an
active race training. The ultrasonographic examination of SDFT (superficial digital
flexor tendon) was carried out with a linear transducer 6-8 Mhz. The averaged
values of cross-sectional area measurements were 92.36 mm2 at level
A, 95.23 mm2 at level B and 105.59 mm2 at level C. The
results were statistically analyzed with t-Student test.

Key words: superficial digital flexor tendon, ultrasonography, locomotor system, horse.
