Ultrasound uses high-frequency soundwaves to produce real-time moving images of your pet’s internal organs. A small probe held against the skin collects the returning signals to create an image of the internal body.
Ultrasound is particularly useful when examining your pet’s abdomen and internal organs and is used frequently for pregnancy examinations.
When used in conjunction with other diagnostic tools like X-rays, ultrasound images can help identify disease, blockages, skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, and other internal injuries.
At Veterinary Center of East Northport, ultrasounds are conducted onsite by one of our skilled licensed veterinary technicians. The images are then reviewed by a board-certified veterinary ultrasound specialist.
