Abstract

Ultrasonography is a non-invasive approach for exploration of morphology, topographic anatomy, and biological processes in non-domestic animals. This imaging technique is still under-utilised in wildlife medicine. Ultrasonography provides reproducible real time images, cross-sectional imaging of tissues, organ structures, and motion. Images may be used for morphometrics, documentation, and preservation of data. Ultrasound imaging in veterinary sciences offers new information regarding embryonic development, uterine and ovarian function, muscle development, digestive process, where conventional experimental and dissection techniques are limited. The use of ultrasonography in different vertebr..
