Ultrasonography Consults - Diagnostic Imaging
Metrovet Center performs ultrasonography consults and diagnostic imaging. An ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging procedure that enables an in-depth view of your pet's organs. The ultrasound allows for the evaluation of internal organs and is a highly useful tool in evaluating heart conditions (referred to as echocardiogram), detecting alterations in abdominal organs and assisting in the recognition of cysts and tumors. With the ability for real-time monitoring, ultrasounds are also utilized for pregnancy diagnosis and development monitoring. We have trained ultrasonographers with state-of-the-art equipment that regularly visit our practice to perform ultrasounds.
Anesthesia or sedation is not usually necessary to perform an ultrasound on the heart or abdomen. With the ability to obtain real time information, outcomes can often be determined immediately.
At Metrovet Center, we utilize advanced diagnostic tools, including state-of-the-art imaging, to more quickly and accurately arrive at diagnosis of a medical condition and thus develop the treatment protocol for a patient faster.
