We use a variety of mobile ultrasound providers, each of whom come to Beverly Oaks to provide on-site advanced imaging services, when these services are needed to help delve deeper into the causes of a pet’s illness. Radiographs, for example, compress the 3 dimensional patient into a flat 2 dimensional image rendered in varying shades of grayscale. Oftentimes the gray doesn’t allow you to see differences in the tissue density. Ultrasonography bounces soundwaves against the tissues and the differences in the tissue are then able to be observed. This helps diagnose fluid in the abdomen, or cysts in an organ, or a tumor in a tissue-dense structure such as the liver.
