The doctors at Audubon Veterinary Hospital use our ultrasound system to evaluate ailments that may lie below the skin of your pet. Ultrasound technology uses sound waves that are beyond the range of hearing of pets and people to obtain dynamic images of your pet’s internal organs. Used in conjunction with our radiographic equipment, ultrasound greatly improves our diagnostic capabilities with minimal stress to your pet.
Why is it Important?
Ultrasound imaging is a painless and relatively stress-free method of visualizing the organs and soft tissues of your pet’s body. In the past, exploratory surgeries were the only good way to biopsy an abnormal mass within an animal, but with the ultrasound as a guide, we can biopsy a lesion with minimal side effects for your pet.
While x-rays provide us with good images of bone, an ultrasound is the best way to identify problems with internal organs and soft tissue.
