DID YOU KNOW?
Ultrasound is increasingly being used in Veterinary general practice to help diagnose our patients. Over the last decade the quality and accessibility of ultrasound equipment has meant that many veterinary practices now are able to offer this service, rather than requiring referral to a specialist facility.
WHAT IS ULTRASOUND USED FOR?
Here at Central Rochedale Vet Clinic, we are happy to be able to offer this diagnostic tool to our patients.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to create an image. Unlike X-rays or CT-scans (which use ionizing radiation and can be harmful with frequent use), ultrasound is generally considered safe to the user and patient.
Ultrasound is a valuable tool which we use to examine soft tissue structures within the body, particularly the abdomen (including pregnancy) and the heart. It enables us to look at the size and structure of internal organs with a typically quick and painless procedure.
