Real-Time Ultrasound Imagine For Accurate Veterinary Diagnostics

Ultrasound imaging is a veterinary diagnostic tool that uses high frequency sound waves to produce real-time images of your pet’s internal systems. Painless and non-invasive, it offers a high degree of clarity when examining your critter companion’s organ, muscle, and bone functions. Often used in conjunction with digital X-rays, ultrasound technology aids our veterinarians in diagnosing and treating your feline or canine family member.

Abdominal Ultrasound

Abdominal ultrasound simplifies the diagnoses of internal disease by providing our veterinarians with a clear view inside the patient’s stomach, liver, kidneys, and other internal organs. The real-time capabilities of ultrasound technology allow our veterinarians to diagnose and assess a variety of veterinary conditions including:

  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Urinary bladder disease or kidney stones
  • Pregnancy
  • Enlarged lymph nodes and cancer
  • Abdominal masses, fluid, and foreign material
  • Pancreatitis and inflammatory bowel disease

Should a mass be discovered during an ultrasound, our team will use anesthesia during the remainder of the ultrasound. This ensures our patient is comfortably asleep while we pass an ultrasound-guided needle directly into the mass. This is done to collect (or aspirate) a small tissue sample, which will be used to properly identify the mass. This option is infinitely less invasive than a surgical procedure that would otherwise be required to collect this kind of diagnostic tissue sample.
