Ultrasound

Ultrasound

Since September 2008, Dr. Robinson is pleased to announce the addition of ultrasonography to the list of diagnostic tools the hospital has to aid in the diagnosis of particular conditions. Dr. Robinson successfully completed his continuing education for small animal ultrasound in Nov. 2008.

Ultrasonography allows for great evaluation of a patients internal organs.

Ultrasound can be performed on a patient while awake or light sedation after clipping the hair over the spot of interest. This diagnostic tool also allows for organ biopsy, fine needle aspiration or guided cystocentesis.



Ultrasound Photo

We can also perform an ultrasound on pregnant female patients to see and count fetuses at or after 31-32 days of gestation compared to 45 days with a radiograph.

Radiology

X-ray machine

Radiographs can be performed on pets just as they are in humans. They are a great diagnostic tool that provide valuable information about animals bones, gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, heart, and genitourinary system. They are used alone or in conjuction with other diagnostic tools such as bloodwork or ultrasound to identify the cause of a presenting condition and/or rule out possible problems.

Below are examples of a Hip Radiograph and an x-ray where a swallowed golf ball can clearly be seen.
