On Site Ultrasound / Echocardiography
Ultrasound is the process of using sound waves to create images of your pet’s abdominal organs, heart or any soft tissue that is not obstructed by air or bone. The sound waves create different shades of grey and color depending on their reflections through different tissues. One major drawback of ultrasound is the hyper-reflectivity of air or bone which makes imaging the lungs, bones or sometimes the stomach and intestine nearly impossible. However, in the soft tissues that are unobstructed, the image patterns can help the sonographer detect structural abnormalities of the larger organs, abnormal masses if present, assess lymphatic tissues, detect the presence of abnormal fluid in the body as well as many other processes. Ultrasound is also the method of choice for imaging the heart and measuring cardiac function. The sound waves are a painless and a non-invasive method of assessing the internal structures of the body.
Assessing organ architecture and structure
Masses or neoplasia
Foreign body detection
Assessing fluid in peritoneal, retroperitoneal, pericardial or pleural space
Cardiac function and characterization of cardiac disease
Assessing choleliths or uroliths
Assistance with fine needle aspirates or guided biopsy of soft tissue
On Site Computed Tomography
Known commonly as CT or CAT scan, computed tomography employs x-rays often in combination with contrast media to create an image of soft and bony tissues inside the body. CT is a more specific method to image the structures that are difficult to see with ultrasound such as lungs, skeletal structures and the gastrointestinal tract. As with ultrasound, CT can detect structural abnormalities of the chest, abdomen, and neck in addition to the spine and head. Like ultrasound, certain abnormalities can also be detected with CT but computed tomography is superior to ultrasound in assessing vasculature both normal and abnormal. Additionally with the combination of CT and contrast media, studies that highlight abnormal shunting of vessels, ectopia in the urinary tract and abnormal contrast uptake can be performed.
Nasal/sinus disease- helps differentiate neoplasia from rhinitis and guides biopsy
Middle/inner ear evaluation- determines the need for bulla osteotomy
Skull trauma- increased sensitivity for fracture identification and brain hemorrhage
Elbows- allows for diagnosis of MCP fragments
Evaluate for lumbosacral disc herniation/ degeneration
Thoracic met checks- more sensitive than radiographs
Evaluate mediastinal and lung masses- surgical planning by evaluating the extent of vascular invasion
Evaluate for pituitary macroadenomas- present in ~10% of PDH cases
Ureter Evaluation- diagnosis of ectopic ureters and ureteral stones

Mobile Ultrasound Service
Within 20 miles radius or about 20-30
minutes of normal driving from Frisco
Outside of working hours
The veterinarians MUST FIRST TEXT 614-588-4110 to inquire about availability.
Inquiries can be made 24×7 (including weekends and holidays).
We usually arrive within an hour of the request unless there is an issue or a conflicting
appointment (in-house or outside) in which case we will give you an estimated time of arrival.
Ultrasound/echo scan can usually be done promptly, but the delivery of the result depends on the availability of the radiologist.
During normal business hours, the results are back within the same day, and the STAT results are usually delivered within an hour.
Outside of normal business hours, the results will usually arrive the following business day. (Including STAT requests)
