Ultrasonographic doppler use for female reproduction management


Bollwein, Heiner; Heppelmann, Maike; Lüttgenau, Johannes (2016). Ultrasonographic doppler use for female reproduction management. The Veterinary clinics of North America. Food animal practice, 32(1):149-164.

Abstract

Transrectal color Doppler ultrasonography is a useful technique to get new information about physiologic and pathophysiologic alterations of the uterus and ovaries in female cattle. During all reproductive stages characteristic changes in uterine blood flow are observed. Cows with puerperal disturbances show delayed decrease in uterine blood flow in the first few weeks postparturition compared with healthy cows. Measurement of follicular blood flow is used to identify normally developing follicles and predict superovulatory response. Determination of luteal blood is more reliable than B-mode sonography to distinguish between functional and nonfunctional corpora lutea. Color Doppler ultrasonography is a promising tool to improve reproductive management in female cattle.
