Visualizing muscle and internal organs and associated pathologies from the outside is made possible by an ultrasound-based diagnostic imaging technique known as ultrasonography. An image is produced when sound waves are transmitted from vibrating piezoelectric crystals in a transducer and are focused into the body. These sound waves are then reflected whenever density changes between different tissues are encountered. These reflected waves are then captured by the transducer which transforms vibrations into electrical pulses that compose a digital image.
Ultrasonography facilitates diagnosing medical issues without necessitating invasive surgeries. Visualization of the internal organs is made possible quickly and easily and generally without the need of anaesthesia. We have recently updated our ultrasonography instruments to a newer, more advanced system to enable improved diagnostics.
If you have any questions about ultrasonography or whether it can be used to aid with your pet's medical issues, please do not hesitate to ask one of our team members.
