Dr. Tonya Tromblee Performing an Ultrasound at Mass Vet

 

Ultrasound uses sound waves and a computer to generate focused images of the body.  It does not use x-rays, a form of ionizing radiation, to acquire the images.  Thus it is safer for the patient and non-invasive.  Ultrasound exams are available on an inpatient and outpatient basis.

Ultrasound is frequently used to evaluate the abdomen, including:

  • Liver disease
  • Splenic masses
  • Gastrointestinal tract – e.g. Foreign body obstruction, tumors
  • Urinary bladder – e.g. Stones
  • Kidney disease

Ultrasound can also be used to evaluate other parts of the body including the chest, tendons, and salivary glands, and to guide biopsies or needle aspirates.

Outpatient ultrasound is available to patients in combination with a referral from their veterinarian at IVG MetroWest, Mass Vet and Port City. Please click here to see what  to expect from an outpatient ultrasound appointment.
