Uses for Veterinary Ultrasounds

In a veterinary practice or clinic, there are a wide variety of applications for ultrasound technology. Some of the most common uses for this veterinary equipment include ingested foreign bodies and pregnancies. A number of organs can be viewed with ultrasound machines, including the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys and spleen. Blood vessels can be seen as well, which provides information about blood flow through the arteries. In addition, ultrasounds can provide a closer look at tumors and masses and even help guide needle biopsies for laboratory testing. In general, many sources of abdominal pain or discomfort can be investigated with the assistance of veterinary ultrasound equipment.

Ultrasounds can also be coupled with X-rays to provide an even more complete picture of an animal’s current health. Referencing both types of images can help veterinarians to make an accurate diagnosis and plan the best course of treatment for each patient.
