Ultrasound

Ultrasonography (also referred to as ultrasound) is one of Dr. Fuller's special interests. She especially enjoys doing both cardiac and abdominal ultrasounds. Ultrasound is a great diagnostic tool for looking at specific details within vital organs of the body. While x-ray gives us a general picture of what is occurring, ultrasound is able to provide us with even more information that is often necessary for diagnosis and treatment.

Ultrasound can be used to evaluate a number of organs, including the:

  • liver
  • kidneys
  • pancreas
  • gallbladder
  • bladder
  • stomach
  • small intestine and large intestine
  • spleen
  • prostate gland

 

Once images are received and reviewed by Dr. Fuller, they can easily be referred to specialists, including veterinary radiologists and cardiologists if needed.
