My principal research interests relate to the testing of investigative techniques commonly used in equine medicine with a view to establishing their precision and accuracy, e.g. grading of lameness (Hewetson, M., et al, Vet Rec, 2006. 158(25), 852-7), radiographic assessment of osteoarthritis of the distal tarsal joints (Labens, R., G. et al,. Vet Radiol Ultrasound, 2007. 48(3), 204-211). The overall objectives of this work are to gain a better understanding of the limitations of diagnostic techniques, establish best practice and provide benchmarks for clinical audit.
Recently I have collaborated with Professor C Lischer, also of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, in a project using computed tomography to define the anatomical constraints for implants used for arthrodesis of the distal tarsus in horses. It is hoped that this work will lead to the development of a novel implant.
