The current presentation, based on literature reviews and veterinary and radiology opinions, offers a brief overview of the current status of imaging the equine navicular syndrome. Conventional radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography, scintigraphy and magnetic resonance imaging are considered since all appear to have some purpose in the diagnosis and staging, relating to the complexity of the syndrome. Appropriate imaging evaluation, following physical examination can yield useful information, not only helping to define the extent of the disease but also facilitating the identification of the most appropriate treatments||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Society of Radiographers Slovenia||Journal:||Bilten : Glasilo društva radioloških inženirjev Slovenije in Zbornice radioloških inženirjev Slovenije||Volume:||27||Issue:||2||Start page:||8||End page:||11||Keywords:||Radiographic imaging; Equine navicular syndrome; Magnetic resonance imaging; Computerised tomography; Ultrasound||Subject LCSH:||Navicular disease--Imaging
