These images show an 11 year old Quarter Horse with a moderate tear of the medial collateral ligament of the right front coffin joint who was treated twice daily on the Vitafloor. The first image is a sonogram of medial collateral ligament of right front coffin joint displaying an enlarged cross-sectional area and a fresh-appearing core lesion.
