- This article presents ultrasonographic and post-mortem findings from a wide range of common ovine diseases, in which provisional veterinary diagnosis was confirmed by using ultrasonography at the time of the first clinical examination and without recourse to additional, potentially expensive, diagnostic facilities. Furthermore, cases studies are presented of conditions and diseases not previously reported in the veterinary literature, where further investigations and the eventual diagnosis was greatly facilitated by ultrasonographic findings. The article seeks to further develop the application of diagnositic ultrasonography in everyday small ruminant practice.
