An ultrasound is a medical imaging technique that uses the reflection of ultrasound waves. It is non-invasive and non-irradiating which means it is completely safe for the patient. There are different types of imaging including abdominal ultrasounds, cardiac ultrasounds, thoracic ultrasounds, superficial ultrasounds, musculotendinous ultrasounds, osteoarticular ultrasounds, ocular ultrasounds, interventional ultrasounds, and pre-operative ultrasounds…
Ultrasounds are essential as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool. Our team is fortunate to have access to the highest performing technology offered. Our ultrasound machine delivers advanced options such as tissue Doppler, speckle tracking (cardiology), elastography (shear-wave and strain), and contrast imaging.
Ultrasounds provide images of all organs; they are also used to quickly and safely obtain tissue samples (biopsy) which makes this technique even more impressive as a diagnostic technique. Thus, all organs are virtually accessible to ultrasound-guided puncture.
There are plenty of scientific publications by the clinic’s veterinarians that demonstrate how beneficial medical imaging (ultrasound, MRI) is to the diagnostic process.
