Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce real-time videos and images of soft tissues and fluid-filled structures in the body, including internal organs and the abdominal region. This painless procedure allows veterinarians to identify health problems and potentially avoid the need for surgery.
Like digital radiology, the process of taking an ultrasound is safe and non-invasive. Common conditions that are diagnosed using ultrasound technology include pregnancy, abdominal issues, heart disease, foreign body ingestion, cancer, abdominal masses and intestinal disorders.
To confidently make an accurate diagnosis, we oftentimes use ultrasound imaging in combination with digital radiology.
