Why Handheld Ultrasound is Must for a Veterinary?
Ultrasound machines have been helping doctors in their diagnosis since long. Ultrasound has been used in a variety of clinical settings, including obstetrics and gynecology, cardiology and cancer detection.The equipment helps the doctors get the image of internal body structure.
The main advantage of ultrasound is that certain body organs can be observed without using radiation. Ultrasound can also be done much faster than X-rays or other radiographic techniques.
Veterinaries have the most difficult task as their patients are not someone who does what the doctor says. Treating animals makes it difficult for a vet to perform any diagnosis. Specially with a non-portable ultrasound machine.
When vets treat their patients they have to be extremely careful with the animals because they are scared or hurt and they might sometimes try to bite, kick, or scratch their vets. While doing a diagnosis animals do not stay still which makes it a hard task for the vets.
Using a handheld ultrasound system is a solution to all their problems.
One major advantage of handheld ultrasound is that it is easy to move around. This means it can be put away when not in use or when space in the clinic is limited, it can be shared between consulting rooms and service is easy as it can be packed up and sent away. These machines do not require electric power so there is no need of cord. They work with rechargeable battery and can easily be charged even in the car.
Handheld veterinary ultrasounds are perfect for diagnosis of large animals especially cows and mares and also of farm livestock like goats, sheep and pigs. These machines can be used like palm ultrasound, wrist or even like laptop scanners.
