Less Pain - The laser beam seals nerve endings as it cuts through tissue. This reduces the amount of pain the patient feels during and after surgery. Your pet will be more comfortable.
Less Bleeding - The laser seals small blood vessels during surgery, resulting in less bleeding and quicker procedures. This reduces the time your pet needs to be under anesthesia.
Less Swelling - Only light comes into contact with the tissue. This eliminates the tearing and bruising of tissue associated with traditional surgical methods.
Reduced Risk of Infection - As it moves through the tissue, the high heat of the laser energy kills bacteria, virus, and fungi, the micro-organisms that commonly cause infection.
With these benefits, your pet will feel less post-operative discomfort and return to normal activities sooner.
As a diagnostic tool, ultrasound has a wide variety of uses in veterinary medicine, including:
Examining many of the body's internal organs, including the heart, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, prostate, adrenal glands and urinary bladder.
Monitoring fetal development and accessing fetal abnormalities
Determining the source of pain, swelling or infection in many parts of the body
Assessing organ damage based on abnormal laboratory results.
Determining the origin of abnormalities seen on radiographs or discovered during physical exam.
Revealing the shape, texture and composition of tumors and cysts.
To allow for accurate minimally-invasive guided biopsies of abnormalities.
To avoid the need for exploratory surgery.
To "see" through collections of fluid in the abdomen or chest when radiographs (X-rays) are not helpful.
A tiny color digital camera connected to a tapered probe to examine your pet.
It transmits color videos to a monitor that you and your veterinarian can see clearly. Your veterinarian may also print out a color picture of the image on the monitor.
Your animal's doctor may use the Video Vetscope in a variety of ways. The camera may be used to better diagnose ear infections or blockages, pinpoint dental or throat conditions or identify rectal or genital/urinary tract problems that might not otherwise be seen.
The tapered probe also contains a biopsy channel that allows for videoscopic and/or laparoscopic procedures such as tumor or foreign body removal.
