Ultrasound and Digital Radiography



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. 

Echocardiography or Thoracic (chest) ultrasound can be used to uncover abnormalities of the heart and surrounding structures, such as fluid, tumors, and any abnormalities of heart chambers, valves, and the great vessels.

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.
