How To Book A Scan
Please be aware that I will only scan animals at a veterinary surgeon’s request. You cannot book me if you are an owner of an animal directly – but please feel free to show your vet practice my details if you come across this website!
What equipment does the practice require?
I bring my own ultrasound machine - I have a SIUI Apogee 2300V with a range of probes - microconvex, linear and phased array. I also carry a Clarius C7V HD3 which a great additional tool to have. You can read more about these on my ultrasound machine review page.
What scans and procedures can Camilla do?
In abdominal scans I include – liver, gallbladder, spleen, kidneys, adrenal glands, aorta and caudal vena cava, medial iliac lymph nodes, jejunal lymph nodes, stomach, pyloroduodenal junction, duodenum, jejunum, ileum, ileocaecocolic junction, colon, right limb, left limb and body of the pancreas. In addition where necessary and possible I will look at reproductive organs, bile ducts, and signs of a PSS.
My cardiac scans for acquired diseases include a right-sided parasternal long axis 4 chamber and 5 chamber view and short-axis views. I will also look at left-sided views of the heart and assess lungs for signs of pulmonary oedema.
I perform procedures such as taking ultrasound-guided fine needle aspirates and biopsies, cystocentesis, abdominocentesis, pericardiocentesis, prostatic washes etc.
I also include a recording of the heart auscultation for comparison at a later date of heart murmurs.
My reports contain measurements that can be used for comparison at a later date. The report is sent within 24 hours of leaving the practice.
How many scans can Camilla do in one day and how frequently do I visit practices?
Some practices I am at weekly, some monthly and others more sporadically – I am happy with all of these scenarios. Grouping scans onto one day is useful as I usually only visit one practice a day. My maximum is about 8 scans in a day, but it does depend on the cases.
What further information do we need to discuss?
I currently have a waiting list for new practices to join - please join the waiting list here. Please also take a look at the list of peripatetic ultrasonographers to see if someone is available near you.
