Ask @vetbiobankequine : If we have an X ray, is it a sufficient exam to give to our vet before an injection? What are all the exams that we need to have done before?

Hi Scott,

It will probably be not enough. It has to be crossmatched at least with a thorough clinical examination ; in the case of the tendon, an ultrasound exam will be required.
This is the minimum. After additional exams like MRI or scanner can give a better image of the lesion.

This answer has to be checked with a vet.
