Venous thrombosis in dogs and cats

Vascular thrombosis can develop in dogs and cats due to several conditions. In this video, the sonographic features of venous thrombosis are described in a dog with a large renal mass and in another dog with lymphoma. Arterial thrombosis is also described in a dog with hyperadrenocorticism and a cat with cardiomyopathy. [annotated video, 1:45]

Lymphadenopathies in dogs and cats

Several pathologies can result in abdominal lymphadenopathy. This video describes the sonographic features seen with IBD, lymphoma, bacterial prostatitis, histiocytic sarcoma and metastatic anal sac adenocarcinoma. [annotated video, 2:41]

Polypoid cystitis

Polypoid cystitis often appears as ventral bladder thickening with several polypoid projections flaoting in the lumen. Mineralized sediments are also commonly encountered.[annotated video, 1:42]

Eye injury: BB pellets

Eye injuries from BB pellets can result in hyperechoic tract through an eye, and/or presence of small discrete bright interface with comet-tail artifact.[annotated video, 1:06]

Acute cholangiohepatitis in a dog

Neutrophilic cholangiohepatitis was diagnosed in this Labrador retriever and several interesting findings were seen on ultrasound, which included enlarged periportal tissues and an increased visualisation of intrahepatic arteries. [annotated video, 1:45]

Calcinosis circumscripta in a dog

Calcinosis circumscripta is an uncommon syndrome of ectopic idiopathic, dystrophic, metastatic or iatrogenic mineralization characterized by deposition of calcium salts in soft tissues (Tafti et al., 2005). In this case, ultrasound was used to investigate a paindul swelling that progressed on the side of the neck of a 14-month-old Greyhounrd dog. Fine-needle aspirations were performed, […]
