Ultrasound Imaging Helps
Diagnose Pet Problems
Ultrasound is an advanced, state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging technique that is painless and noninvasive. Using sound waves, a computer image is generated that helps us to evaluate the internal structure of organs and abnormal lesions.
In the abdomen, diagnostic ultrasound is especially valuable for imaging the:
- Gall bladder
- Lymph nodes
- Adrenal glands
- Urinary bladder
In the chest, diagnostic ultrasound is useful to look for tumors, fluid, and evaluation of the heart. It is very useful for pregnancy evaluations. In addition, we also use ultrasound to guide us in diagnostic procedures such as urine collection and the biopsy of internal organs and tumors.
