Two-dimensional grayscale ultrasound and spectral Doppler waveform evaluation of dogs with chronic enteropathies


Gaschen, Lorrie; Kircher, Patrick (2007). Two-dimensional grayscale ultrasound and spectral Doppler waveform evaluation of dogs with chronic enteropathies. Clinical Techniques in Small Animal Practice, 22(3):122-127.

Abstract

Sonography is an important diagnostic tool to examine the gastrointestinal tract of dogs with chronic diarrhea. Two-dimensional grayscale ultrasound parameters to assess for various enteropathies primarily focus on wall thickness and layering. Mild, generalized thickening of the intestinal wall with maintenance of the wall layering is common in inflammatory bowel disease. Quantitative and semi-quantitative spectral Doppler arterial waveform analysis can be utilized for various enteropathies, including inflammatory bowel disease and food allergies. Dogs with inflammatory bowel disease have inadequate hemodynamic responses during digestion of food. Dogs with food allergies have prolonged vasodilation and lower resistive and pulsatility indices after eating allergen-inducing foods.
