Diagnostic Ultrasound provides a non-invasive view into the heart, liver, kidneys, and other internal organs. Real time ultrasound enables the practitioner to view dynamic motion of heart, bowel, blood vessels and to capture those images.
Progression and response to treatment can be followed and compared. Images can be sent through telemedicine to radiologists and cardiologists for expert interpretation and advice for difficult or urgent care.
Ultrasound compliments radiographic imaging as ultrasound sees tissues and fluids well, while x-rays see bone, mineral, and gas well.
Pregnancy in dogs and cats can be determined 21 days after last breeding. Ultrasound is used in horses trans-rectally to determine pregnancy as soon as 15 days after breeding.
