SVIM consulting and ultrasound provides ultrasound by referral. I will soon offer mobile ultrasound in the primary care veterinary hospital.
Diagnostic ultrasound, which uses high frequency sound waves to create "real time" images of soft tissue anatomy, is another significant advancement in veterinary medicine. As a safe, painless way to look inside the body, ultrasound can observe blood flow, heartbeats, and gastrointestinal movement as they occur. Abdominal ultrasound can be used to examine soft tissue structures such as the liver, gall bladder, spleen, kidneys, bladder, prostate, uterus, ovaries, adrenal glands, stomach, and intestines.
Ultrasound is a very important tool used to document disease, monitor progression of disease, and help determine if a patient is a candidate for surgical intervention.
