Common Indications for Veterinary Ultrasound

Overall, ultrasound will help to:
Define disease severity
Diagnose early
May help avoid unnecessary surgery
Provide non-invasive diagnosis with imaging and/or tissue aspiration

Elevated chemistry enzymes
• Evaluate organ size, vascularity, echotexture
• Obtain fine needle samples to further diagnose primary or secondary disease
• Gather insight on surgical prognosis, multisystem involvement

Suspicion of mass(s)
• Further investigate palpable, or radiographic abnormalities

Change in appetite
• Vomiting, diarrhea, increased/decreased appetite or thirst
• Ultrasound imaging can provide the necessary diagnosis of obstructive patterns, pathology, and general morphology of the complete digestive system

Respiratory changes
• Assess minor or advanced lung changes, mass(s)

Heart murmurs
• Evaluate source, severity of velocity elevations
• Valve, muscle function, degree of functional change
• Insight on medication institution, modification

Musculoskeletal changes/lameness
• Evaluate ligament, tendon, and muscle health preoperatively for orthopedic procedures, or to evaluate the need for surgical intervention
