In my experience, there are two types of ultrasonographers—those who tinker a lot with their image settings, and those who prefer to never adjust anything. By the very nature of my job, I’m definitely the former… but both groups can get themselves into trouble. The Tinkerers can go down a rabbit hole and find themselves even further from the results they want, and the Never-Adjusts might be missing a lot of opportunities to optimize their image quality.
If you’re anything like me, you barely scratch the surface with regard to using all the features on your gadgets. I know that my iPhone, laptop, and GoPro are capable of all kinds of fun things that I don’t take advantage of. Well, it’s very likely that your veterinary ultrasound also has some hidden gem features that you haven’t used!

In 2014 EIMI has launched the Ibex® LS to replace its already popular Bantam line of ultrasound systems. The company looks to duplicate its growth since Maloy purchased the company and continues to add distributors around the world to help customers in every industry and any environment. EIMI customers continue to look for more ways to incorporate ultrasound into their veterinary practices, livestock production and other animal businesses. EIMI continues to look for ways to be there as a partner in their businesses.

Before we explore what ultrasonography is, let us first examine the terms ultrasonography and ultrasound. According to the AMA Manual of Style, ultrasonography refers to the imaging procedure itself; whereas, ultrasound refers to the sound waves that penetrate the body during ultrasonography. These terms are not synonymous.
