Ultrasound Imaging

 

Ultrasound imaging includes abdominal and chest ultrasonography, as well as use of ultrasound technology to diagnose irregularities and ailments in almost all parts of the body.

Ultrasound technology is based on sending sound waves, in frequencies that are not audible to humans and pets, into the body tissues, collecting back the reflection of these waves from the tissues, and processing them through a sophisticated software into images that are representative of the physical status of the tissues and organs. This way, we can differentiate abnormalities from normal status.

Ultrasound proves to be a non – invasive procedure which can be performed fairly easily on pets with minimal restrain either at the clinic, or at home.
