Ultrasound offers a non-invasive, gentle method for the diagnosis and staging of many conditions and diseases. It allows us to visualize the internal status of many organs. Nodules, masses, cysts and abscesses can not only be seen, but counted and measured as well. Many organs that are difficult to see on x-ray alone are easily visualized with ultrasound.
Prepping for this procedure is a quick clipping of the hair overlying the area to be scanned. The entire scanning process takes 30-40 minutes and is entirely non-invasive.
Ultrasound is a very important tool, allowing an earlier diagnosis for many conditions, which in turn can give your pet a better chance for successful treatment.
