Ultrasound gets images similar to those obtained via CT scan.  The only real clinical differences between ultrasound and CT scans are patients are moving with ultrasound because they are not anesthetized and artifacts occasionally get in the way with ultrasound, limiting results.  Ultrasound is much cheaper and less invasive than CT scans though.  For the most part, ultrasound is like doing surgery without a knife or cutting and often gets answers or tells what to do next in order to obtain definitive answers.

Case of the Month

Case of the Month #5

A 1.5y old castrated male Boston Terrier was in treatment for two weeks for mild renal disease (unresponsive to conventional therapy).  No significant history was ever noted.  After numerous trips to the specialist and much frustration, the owners asked for and got an ultrasound from their local veterinarian as a last ditch effort.  Below are the ultrasound pictures, which are highly suggestive of multiple intestinal partial foreign bodies. Thanks to the persistence of the owners and ultrasound technology, a solution was finally found. 20 years ago, ultrasound was not capable of even examining the intestines; now ultrasound of the GI tract is fairly common (but still needs to be asked for many times).
