Ultrasound imaging is a technique that uses sound waves to examine soft tissue and bony surfaces. Ultrasound is painless and does not have any side effects. Ultrasound imaging is recommended for examining joints, tendons and muscles but can also be used therapeutically for infiltration of deeper situated joints such as the facet joints of the neck.
An ultrasound examination takes about 20 to 60 minutes. To guarantee the safety of both patient and veterinarian, ultrasound imaging is carried out under sedation.
