Peritoneopericardial diaphragmatic hernia in two cats

Peritoneopericardial diaphragmatic hernias (PPDH) are more often seen in cats, often as an incidental finding. The herniation of liver parenhyma, gallbladder, spleen, fat and sometimes GI tract can be misinterpreted as primary cardiac disease, pericardial effusion or a thoracic mass. Radiographic and sonographc features of PPDH are described in two cats in this video. [annotated […]

Hepatic arteriovenous malformation in a dog

Hepatic arterovenous malformations can be challenging to differentiate from intrahepatic intrahepatic shunts. However, intrahepatic shunts should not result in portal hypertension. Key features help identify the presence of arterioportal communications and its consequences. Several Color and Spectral Doppler signs are discussed in this video. For a better understanding of the use of Doppler and its […]

Splenorenal shunts in cats

Splenorenal shunts are increasingly recognized in cats and are most often incidental. Their features on ultrasound and radiographs are discussed in this video. For more information on the significance of these shunts in cats, you can refer to this article by Palerme et al in JVIM, 2013.[annotated video, 2:29]

Acquired portosystemic shunts in dogs

Portosystemic shunts can develop under sustained portal hypertension. Their morphology can vary, making these challenging to identify with ultrasound. The main features of acquired portosystemic shunts are discussed in this video. For more information on portosystemic shunt morphologies, consult pages 224-234 of the Atlas of Small Animal Ultrasonography (2nd edition). The reader is also encouraged […]

Feline intestinal eosinophilic sclerosing fibroplasia

Feline eosinophilc enteritis is cytologically strongly suspected in this cat with a segmental jejunal thickening/mass that is inhomogeneous but primarily hyperechoic. There is also evidence of diffuse intestinal thickening with marked muscularis thickening, and marked jejunal lymphadenopathy. [annotated video, 2:07]

Emphysematous gastritis

The gastric wall is thickened and gas is dissecting the wall in this dog with emphysematous gastritis. Gas is also present in the portal circulation, as noted in the liver where numerous small hyperechoic foci are seen throughout the parenchyma.[annotated video, 2:23]

Scanning the adrenal glands

In this video, the normal anatomy of the adrenal glands of a dog is presented using a combination of schematic illustrations, and scanning tips. Also simultaneous presentation of the displacement of the probe on the dog along with the corresponding ultrasound videoclips of the adrenal glands provides useful visual landmarks for the viewer.[narrated and annotated […]
