Ultrasound is a pain-free, totally non-invasive technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce a real-time image of your pet’s internal organs. Considered an important adjunct to X-rays, ultrasound provides a movie of what is happening inside your pet’s body.
Abdominal ultrasound can provide more detailed information about larger organs, such as kidneys, liver and spleen, and allows visualization of smaller structures which cannot be seen on radiographs, such as pancreas, gall bladder, adrenal glands, and lymph nodes. Using ultrasound, diagnostic needle aspirates and biopsies can be obtained without surgery in some cases.
Cardiac ultrasound (echocardiogram) can provide detailed information about heart function that allows medication to be tailored to specific problems.
