Advanced diagnostic imaging such as ultrasonography is routinely used here at Verona Animal Hospital. Our in-house equipment affords us the advantage of being able to instantly perform this procedure. Ultrasound often complements X-rays for precise diagnostic imaging. It allows us to see the internal structure of organs, including the presence of tumors, cysts, infections and stones. When needed, ultrasound can also be used to painlessly biopsy internal organs. A biopsy instrument can be safely passed into the area while being observed with ultrasound.
