All Animal Clinic Services: Ultrasound
All Animal Clinic is proud to have Dr. Liz Watson, Dipl. ACVR, as our consulting radiologist. Dr. Watson routinely performs ultrasound for our patients on an as needed basis.
- Abdominal ultrasounds
- Systemic and pulmonary blood pressure monitoring
- Ultrasound guided needle aspirates and biopsies
Ultrasound is a good non-invasive diagnostic tool that can help us identify what is going on inside your pet without the need for surgery. Often times with ultrasound a radiologist can get a fine needle aspirate or even a biopsy sample from an organ with only sedation needed. Ultrasound allows the abdominal organs to be evaluated and measured in a three dimensional manner, sometimes negating the need for surgery, and often providing a definitive diagnosis.
Using ultrasound can often times help pet owners make an informed decision regarding further treatment or surgery for their pets.
