Liver Figure 2
Liver 2

Kidneys

 

Kidneys Figure 1
Kidneys 1

Sagittal view of the left kidney in a dog. A trace of renal pelvic dilation is present.

Kidneys Figure 2
Kidneys 2

Transverse view of the left kidney in a dog. A trace of renal pelvic dilation is present.

 
Kidneys 3 (video clip)
Kidneys 3 (video clip)

A sagittal view of the left kidney in a cat. The architecture of the kidney is greatly abnormal, and there is a hypoechoic, subcapsular thickening present. Fine-needle aspiration of the subcapsular region revealed a diagnosis of lymphosarcoma.

Bladder

Sagittal view of a normal bladder trigone in a cat.

Bladder Figure 2
Bladder 2

Sagittal view of the bladder in a dog. A bladder wall mass is seen along the ventral bladder wall.

 
Bladder Figure 3
Bladder 3

A sagittal view of an obstructive mass in the bladder trigone in a dog. Urine cytology was consistent with transitional cell carcinoma.

Bladder Figure 4

Video clip of a normal ileocolic region in a cat.

 
GI Tract 9 (video clip)
GI Tract 9 (video clip)

Hyperechoic, vertical striations are seen in the mucosal layer of this GI wall. Surgical biopsy results were consistent with lymphangectasia and inflammatory bowel disease.

Pancreas
