The Best Ultrasound Machines Approved by Veterinarians

More and more veterinarians are turning to ultrasound technology as their choice for quality diagnostics and imaging. Ultrasonography is faster, non-invasive, and far more accurate than radiography in evaluating internal organs and aiding in diagnosis. Ultrasounds allow clinicians to locate and pinpoint detailed information or review organ architecture. More affordable than ever, ultrasound machines are becoming the standard of care

Training Day

I would like to share a recent visit to an amazing clinic (I mean it goes without saying that every clinic I visit is amazing!) for ultrasound training. The Pets R Family Veterinary Hospital is in St. Johns, Florida where  Drs. Deckard, McDivitt,. Motycka and Hashey depend on their Samsung HS 40 https://choicemedical.com/samsung-veterinary-ultrasound/hs40/  to strengthen their commitment to quality veterinary

Measure What is Measurable

Let’s talk about measurements.  You are scanning and scrutinizing the organs for their echotexture, echogenicity, size, and shape and in doing so we are trying to determine normal or abnormal to give us some clue as to whether there is a disease process going on or not (remembering that some organs can appear normal sonographically but may still have disease).

Incorporating Ultrasound Into Your Veterinary Practice

Veterinary ultrasound units are becoming more popular in recent years, and for good reason. Diagnosing animal patients can be a tricky matter even in the best of times, and ultrasound can allow a “look inside” at soft tissue and abdominal organs that a conventional exam or X-ray may miss. Why Use Ultrasound For Veterinary Patients? Diagnosing veterinary patients quickly and

Who used the ultrasound machine last and didn’t clean it?

“Cleanliness is next to keeping your ultrasound system running a long and happy life” Okay so that is not quite how the saying goes but, you get the gist. I would like to address something that is SO very important but, a lot of times, gets overlooked and that is keeping your system clean.  Given the environment that we work

It’s Artifactual

The dictionary defines an artifact as “something observed in a scientific investigation or experiment that is not naturally present but occurs as a result of the preparative or investigative procedure.” In other words an artifact is something that shows up that you weren’t expecting and most times you don’t want it to be there.

The School of Knobology

Remember the first time you ever saw an ultrasound machine? Boy, I sure do! It was an Acuson 128xp at the University of Florida Veterinary School in the early 90’s.. It was this giant rectangle on wheels that weighed a ton, had a little tv on the top that made pretty images of snowstorms (on film!), and had so many

Walk the Walk, Talk the Talk

Now a good share of you have already been scanning a lot and some of you just dabble. You have probably done some ultrasound labs and attended a few lectures, and even read some journal articles. Have you ever checked out YouTube? The one thing that you may have noticed whichever you have been exposed to is the lingo that

I bought this Ultrasound machine…now what?

Have you bought an ultrasound machine and now it sits in the corner and it is an expensive scrub jacket stand or towel holder? Or has that ultrasound machine become a fancy cysto or “I only use it to look for fluid” machine?   Your ultrasound machine is so much more!! It is my wish with this blog to give
