Ultrasonography

Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital

Ultrasonography is a valuable, non-invasive imaging technique that complements x-rays and allows our veterinarians to get a clear look at internal organs in the chest and abdomen. This painless diagnostic tool is usually done without the need for sedation. During an ultrasound, high-frequency sound waves are directed into the body and bounce off the organs, creating a computer image of the inside of the body.

An ultrasound is invaluable for assisting in treatment decisions for various types of heart, abdominal, and reproductive conditions. Through a tiny “keyhole” incision, it also allows us to perform a biopsy on organs, such as the liver and kidney. Ultrasounds work in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures. For example, if an x-ray detects a lesion, ultrasound can help determine the origin of the lesion and whether it has spread elsewhere in the body. Using the ultrasound image as a guide, fine needle aspirates and biopsies can be obtained without major surgery and your pet can often go home the same day.
