Despite the obvious differences between humans and animals, some advancements in human health are tremendously beneficial to veterinary patients. Diagnostic ultrasound is one of these innovations that has shown to be an effective tool in veterinary medicine. We are happy to offer ultrasound services as a way to give our patients a higher standard of care.
Ultrasound waves are used in ultrasonography, a form of diagnostic procedure, to provide an imaging study. This implies that we can view internal images of the patient’s body during ultrasonography. Ultrasonography uses no radiation, in contrast to various other imaging procedures like x-rays. Instead, ultrasonography makes a picture of what is inside your pet’s body using high-frequency sound (ultrasound) waves. Many common disorders can be detected and assessed painlessly and without any invasiveness using ultrasonography.
