An ultrasound exam is an excellent diagnostic tool for evaluating your pet because it provides a real-time view of your pet's organs, thus providing information that is not obtainable in any other fashion. Dynamic processes such as blood flow, gastrointestinal contractions, and heartbeats can be evaluated as they occur. Ultrasound also permits your veterinarian to see the internal structure of an organ in a non-invasive fashion.
While ultrasound is most commonly used to evaluate the abdomen and the heart (an ultrasound exam of the heart is frequently termed an "echocardiogram"),it can be used to evaluate the eye, lymph nodes, the thyroid gland, the larynx, and virtually any part of the body that sound waves can reach. Often, but not always,used in conjunction with other diagnostic modalities such as x-rays and blood tests, an ultrasound exam is an invaluable tool in the medical evaluation of your pet.
