Hilton Animal Hospital uses modern ultrasound equipment to image the heart and abdominal organs. Dr. Julie Pearson performs in-house veterinary ultrasound exams on dogs and cats. She is accomplished at both abdominal ultrasounds and cardiac ultrasounds (echocardiogram). Dr. Pearson is a member of the International Veterinary Ultrasound Society (IVUSS).
At our veterinary hospital we are fortunate to have a high quality GE Digital Ultrasound. With this unit we are able to capture images of excellent definition. Many times ultrasound can find lesions that an x-ray cannot. For challenging cases we are able to digitally connect to a network of board certified specialists in cardiology and internal medicine to help us interpret images and develop treatment plans.
