ULTRASONOGRAPHY

ultrasound

 

Ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure which uses reflected sound waves to create pictures of internal organs and other features. Uses:

 - Examination of abdominal organs
 - Pregnancy Test
 - Ultrasound guided tissue and organ sampling
 - Evaluation of the heart chambers contractility and valves function.

Most animals are evaluated while awake, but occasionally a patient requires anesthesia. All that is needed is to clip the pet’s hair at the location to be evaluated.
