Ultrasound is an increasingly used diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. It is a diagnostic method that has been rapidly expanding in recent years given its safety, since it is a non-invasive method of visualizing the internal anatomy, its speed and its precision. All of this, added to the extensive information it provides, makes the ultrasound examination an indispensable complement to radiology in most veterinary action protocols.

The examination informs about the extent of the lesions and their location, which provides the clinician with great help in guiding and deciding the diagnosis. In many cases, ultrasound is the key to making the differential diagnosis and, in the best of cases, to reaching the definitive diagnosis. In turn, it serves as image support for performing techniques such as biopsy and/or fine needle aspiration.
With the introduction of the Doppler effect, ultrasound provides more complete information for diagnostic imaging, providing greater resolution capacity in the daily clinical case mix.
