Computed tomography of the abdomen in Saanen goats: III. kidneys, ureters and urinary bladder


Braun, Ueli; Irmer, M; Augsburger, Heinz; Ohlerth, Stefanie (2011). Computed tomography of the abdomen in Saanen goats: III. kidneys, ureters and urinary bladder. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 153(7):321-329.

Abstract

This study describes the findings of computed tomography (CT) of the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder and adrenal glands in 28 healthy female Saanen goats. CT examination and anatomical slice preparation postmortem was performed as described in the first communication. After subjective evaluation of the CT images, various variables including the size, volume and density of the kidneys, the diameter of the ureters and the size of the adrenal glands were measured. The targeted organs could be accurately visualised using CT and there was very good topographical agreement between the CT images and the anatomical preparations. The kidneys, renal vessels, ureters, urinary bladder and adrenal glands were seen in all goats.
