Ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that utilizes sound waves transmitted into the body to create an image. This allows us to look at the architecture of internal organs and examine location, size, shape, texture and blood supply. It can also help identify masses within the body for further diagnostics, such as a Fine Needle Aspirates, to be submitted for further review. Ultrasound exams are performed for many reasons in veterinary medicine as it is safe and repeatable.
