The vets your pet would choose
Chest and Heart
• Examination of the heart is a very useful tool. We can measure the size and shape of the heart as with any organ but can actually watch the blood flowing through the heart, which is invaluable when choosing the appropriate treatments. This technique has a special name - Echocardiography.
• The lungs or pleura can be examined too, if these are diseased.
• Most commonly examination of the kidneys, liver, spleen, pancreas, urinary tract, reproductive organs and intestine.
• Pregnancy diagnosis.
• Diagnosis of bleeding or fluid accumulation.
• Some forms of muscle, tendon and ligament damage can be diagnosed using ultrasound and this is an emerging field in veterinary medicine.
• The accurate direction and positioning we achieve by ultrasound imaging can allow biopsies to be taken without surgery.
