Abdominal Ultrasound


Abdominal exams should be NPO preferably for 8-12 hours. Please also ask that the pet not go out to void just prior to the appointment if possible.


2-D, M-mode, Color, Pulsed and Continuous Wave Doppler are performed on all echo studies. Measurements are taken and uploaded with video clips and stills. Both Adult and Pediatric (congenital) echoes can be performed.

Aspiration or Biopsy Guidance

Fine Needle Aspiration Technique.
Ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration can be performed at the discretion of the sonographer. This can either be performed at time of the ultrasound, if safe for the patient, or as a follow up procedure once the ultrasound has been interpreted, for higher clinical relevance and more guided approach.
