P Jain, R Vaish, N Gupta, S Tekam and P Washnik
In equine a unique structure guttural pouches are present as a diverticula of auditory tube with debatable function, however its infection like empyema or tympany may leads to discomfort to the animal with production loss. Early diagnosis of these conditions with different diagnostic module can help to identify the disease and its early cure. Endoscopy is most convenient mode for the diagnosis, however required a detailed knowledge of anatomy. Diagnosis with radiography can also be performed in severe condition where intubation is quite difficult to do endoscopy. Other diagnostic modalities like CT, MRI can also be used randomly. In the present review anatomy and different diagnostic imaging technique can be used are discussed.
