Nowadays, ultrasound has become an important diagnostic tool, and its applications are proving more robust and tremendously beneficial in different aspects of veterinary practices. Ultrasound provides a better look at internal organs and allows detection of issues that cannot be observed with a simple radiograph. The advent of ultrasonography enables researchers and veterinarians to assess and monitor tremendous physiological and pathological events in farm, companion, and wild animals. Color Doppler ultrasonography was developed to improve the accuracy of diagnoses in both research and clinical aspects because it depends on the extraction of the physiological function of the organ through evaluating its vascular hemodynamics. Because there is a growing demand for use of ultrasonography in studying, diagnosis, and monitoring many physiological events and diseases of animals, Frontiers in Veterinary Science has organized this Research Topics to highlight the latest advancements in research across the field of diagnostic ultrasonography in farm, companion, and wild animals.
The goal of this special edition Research Topic is to shed light on the progress made in the past decade in applications of diagnostic ultrasonography in different aspects of physiological and pathological issues in the veterinary practices (reproduction, internal medicine, surgery, and cardiology). Furthermore, the use of ultrasonographical technology in animal practice may be challenging due to various considerations. This topic aims to provides a thorough overview of the field. This article collection will inspire, inform and provide direction and guidance to researchers in the field. In this topic, the potential clinical uses of ultrasonography (including color Doppler and contrast-enhanced ultrasonography) for the assessment of different physiological and pathological events in domestic and wild animals will be highlighted.
