Animal Ultrasound Diagnostic Techniques

- Jan 12, 2018 -

    Ultrasound is a diagnostic technique that uses ultrasound to produce imaging studies. This means that when we perform ultrasound we can see the internal image of the animal's body. Unlike some imaging studies (such as x-rays), ultrasound does not use radiation. In contrast, ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to create images of the inside of a pet's body.

    What is animal ultrasound?

    Because ultrasound images are generated in real time, this technique can be used to assess heart beat. This helps us to detect heart valve abnormalities, blood flow through the heart, and contraction of the heart muscle. It can also be used to assess heart defects.

    How does the animal B ultrasound work?

    Ultrasonic machines produce ultrasound. The machine is connected to a small probe and gently rests on the pet's skin. The probe emits inelastic ultrasonic waves, rebounds from structures within the ultrasonic machine, such as organs, and returns to the sensors in the ultrasonic machine. The ultrasound device collects these reflected "echoes" and uses them to generate images that can be viewed on the screen. Ultrasound can produce good abdominal organ images, including the liver, spleen, gall bladder and kidneys. It also helps to assess fetal health and monitor pregnancy in breeding animals, which can help us diagnose and stage (to determine the severity of some forms of cancer).
