For ultrasound services for cats and dogs, Denton Veterinary Center in Denton, Texas has you covered. Ultrasound is known for its use in pregnancy, and it is also a non-invasive and painless imaging technique that uses soundwaves to detect abnormalities and diseases in internal, abdominal organs, as well as the thyroid and parathyroid.
Ultrasound evaluations are useful in evaluating abdominal organs including:
Thyroid and parathyroid
Ultrasounds tests recognize changes in the shape, size, tissue, density, internal structure and position of organs. The exam can identify most abdominal masses or tumors, fluid within the abdominal cavity as well as abnormal lymph nodes. Usually, our vets will recommend an ultrasound exam as the next step after blood work, physical exams, x-rays and other primary diagnostic strategies.
