How Ultrasounds Work
Ultrasound equipment can be used to examine your pet’s lymph nodes, spleen, liver, pancreas, heart, intestinal tract, kidneys, eyes, and reproductive organs. Rather than using radiation like X-ray machines, ultrasound equipment uses sound waves to capture images. Also, unlike X-rays, ultrasounds provide a complete inside view of an organ.
Our veterinary team uses ultrasounds to diagnose a wide range of problems, including cysts, abscesses, nodules, and masses, which may not be able to be detected during a manual exam or on an X-ray.
Diagnosing Beyond a Physical Exam
When you bring your dog or cat to Brier Veterinary Hospital for veterinary care, we can tell a lot about their current health by performing a manual physical exam. In some instances, though, we need to look a bit deeper. When we need a clear picture of what is happening inside your pet’s body, we often depend on ultrasound technology.
At Brier Veterinary Hospital, we use state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to view soft and fluid-filled organs. Ultrasound is safe, does not expose your pet to radiation, and provides us with a wide range of information in a matter of minutes. With ultrasound imaging for pets in Mountlake Terrace, we are able to diagnose problems and begin treatment quickly to ensure the best possible outcome for your beloved companion.
