Digital Ultrasonography

Digital Ultrasonography is a valuable tool in diagnosing and evaluating injuries and illnesses in small animals. It captures high resolution images by passing sound waves through tissues to produce a picture. With this advanced imaging technology, the ultrasound images can be manipulated to provide greater detail and alternative views. It also allows us to show images that are crystal clear and can be downloaded to a CD, USB drive, or printed out as hard copies. Video clips can also be recorded, exported or printed for further consultation.

The Small Animal Probe is utilized to view internal organs and soft tissues.

We are able to evaluate the following views:
Abdominal: views of the intestines, spleen, liver, kidney, bladder stones, or to determine pregnancy.
Chest: views the lungs and heart to assess fluid caused by abscesses, pneumonia or heart disease.
Doppler blood flow: to and from an area of concern.

The objective of ultrasonic evaluation is to characterize the morphological characteristics of the soft tissue structures and bony surfaces, to identify and monitor the soft tissue injuries. The goal is to determine the size and shape (whiteness & brightness) of the structure or fiber pattern. The findings are carefully considered in comparison to the physical exam and other diagnostic procedures.
