Ultrasound

Escanaba Vet Clinic offers ultrasonography, a safe and non-invasive imaging technique for diagnosing and treating sick or injured pets.

An ultrasound uses sound waves, rather than radiation, to penetrate internal organs. X-ray images use radioactive light and can only pick up dense body parts (such as bone and cartilage) but cannot show detail of tissues. Small, fine details that cannot be seen on x-rays may be easily seen on ultrasound.

Similar to sonar technology, an ultrasound transmits high-frequency sound waves into the body. Various tissues "bounce" the waves back toward the ultrasound. The ultrasound then measures the distance for each area that this happens and uses algorithms to display the "echoes" as an image on the screen.

This diagnostic imaging method enables virtually anything internal to be visible, allowing veterinarians to detect:

  • bladder stones
  • kidney stones
  • obstructions
  • cysts
  • pregnancy
  • tumors
  • heart problems
  • abnormal growth
  • free fluid in the body
  • and more

Guided by the ultrasound images, biopsy and fluid samples can be safely and easily obtained from your pet without performing invasive and costly surgery.
