Discover the Benefits of Lung Ultrasound for Small Animals

Lung Ultrasound For Small Animals | FUJIFILM VisualSonics

Vevo ultra-high frequency ultrasound provides a fast, non-invasive method for identifying pulmonary pathologies.


Including:

  • Pleural effusion
  • Pleural thickening 
  • Pleural defects
  • White lung
  • Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction
     

Our technology is also an ideal option for non-invasive induction of your lung cancer models using image-guided injection.


Healthy Lung Characteristic Artifacts:

  • Bright pleural line at top

  • ​A-lines - Curved, bright lines between dark rib shadows

Diseased Lung

Pleural thickening

Pleural thickening can be observed.

Lung infection

Lung infection can be detected and compared to healthy lung tissue.

Pleural effusion

Pleural effusion can be seen along with B-lines coming down from the pleura.

White lung

In more severe cases numerous B-lines appear together as white lung (observed in interstitial-alveolar sydrome.
