Veterinary Ultrasounds

What You Need To Know About Veterinary Ultrasounds

  • Echocardiograms
  • Abdominal studies
  • Thoracic studies (e.g. mediastinal or lung masses)
  • Specialty ultrasounds (e.g. thyroid, parathyroid, reproductive), thoracocentesis, abdominocentesis, pericardiocentesis, and fine-needle aspiration.

In both human and veterinary medicine, ultrasound has been an important imaging modality for many years.

An ultrasound is a non-invasive process of using sound waves to gather images of a patient’s internal organs and heart. Multiple probes are used to press against the skin which direct pulses of high-frequency sound waves into the body. Ultrasound can help detect any abnormalities in organs and determine if masses are present.

After the exam is complete one of our Board-Certified Veterinary Radiologists will meet with the owner and discuss the findings. A report is generated and sent to the owner and referring veterinarian within 24 hours.
