Veterinary ultrasound is a highly useful tool when evaluating internal organs. It can detect alterations in the heart, abdominal organs, and assist in the recognition of any cysts and tumors that may be present. With the ability for real-time monitoring, ultrasounds are also utilized for pregnancy diagnosis and development monitoring.
Ultrasonography is a type of diagnostic technique that uses ultrasound waves to produce an imaging study. This means that when we perform ultrasonography, we can see internal images of the patient’s body. Unlike some other imaging studies, like x-rays, ultrasonography does not use radiation. Instead, ultrasonography uses high-frequency sound (ultrasound) waves to create a picture of what is inside your pet’s body. Ultrasonography is a completely non-invasive, painless way to diagnose and evaluate many common diseases.
