Ultrasonography is a valuable diagnostic tool used to detect several abnormalities in internal organs. It involves sound waves that are passed through tissues to transmit an image onto a monitor. This images helps to detect any abnormality in the structure of an organ.
Ultrasound is also commonly used to diagnose pregnancies at an early stage.
The advantage of using ultrasonography is it is safe for the animal and does not normally require an anesthetic.
It is often used in combination with radiology (x-rays) to give a complete picture of the internal organs.
