1. The principles
THIS is the first of three articles about Doppler ultrasound and its role in the investigation of diseases in dogs and cats. For small animal practitioners already familiar with two-dimensional, grey-scale ultrasonography, Doppler ultrasound represents the next level of sophistication, and is a more technically demanding modality. These articles aim to provide a basis for an understanding of the techniques and to assist in case selection, both for practitioners wishing to perform these studies and those requesting examinations by specialists. This first article describes the Doppler principle and the different types of Doppler techniques that are used for diagnosis. The second and third articles, to be published in the May and June issues, will discuss the applications of Doppler ultrasound in the abdomen and in the assessment of cardiac diseases, respectively.
