Beyond the ER...

By Erika Wierman, DVM on Wed, Jul 01, 2020 @ 01:30 PM

I’ve been thinking a bit lately about a conversation I have frequently with my colleagues.

I repeatedly hear veterinarians bemoaning the time required to learn to perform ultrasound, the expense of implementing it, and the potential liability in interpreting it. They often tell me that they have a “wonderful traveling radiologist/internist” who comes in at a regular interval to conduct ultrasound exams on their accumulated cases.

Discovery of rectal palpation to distinguish features and structures of the female reproductive tract dates back to the 1800’s.

Since then, there has been widespread adoption of this technique as a reproductive tool in the veterinary field to determine various aspects of the cow’s reproductive status. Such aspects pertaining to palpation include uterine manipulation for determining pregnancy status, palpation of ovaries for presence of ovarian structures (i.e. corpus luteum and follicles), and diagnosis of reproductive abnormalities such as abscesses, adhesions, ovarian cysts, etc…

Established in 1995, Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary is located in the beautiful Western Area Peninsula Forest Reserve, close to Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone. The sanctuary covers 100 acres of important rainforest and watershed.

Tacugama was established in 1995 to home and rehabilitate confiscated, orphaned and abandoned chimps. It is illegal in Sierra Leone to hunt, capture, kill or keep chimpanzees—the sanctuary now takes care of over 90 chimps. Much work is also undertaken towards stopping the illegal trade of this endangered species and supporting the protection and conservation of chimpanzees in the wild through education, communication and legal enforcement.

Underwater Ultrasound

By Pete Temple on Thu, Oct 10, 2019 @ 08:53 AM

Underwater ultrasound? You bet!UW-EVO

This specially made system uses all IBEX® EVO® internals and has a hardwired probe. It uses a machined aluminum case to keep cool, so it doesn’t have a fan and is completely waterproof. A USB port is hidden behind the big HEX plug—WiFi is functional so file transfers can be done wirelessly.

The unit weighs in at 9.75 pounds and can operate at a depth of up to 10m. It is slightly negatively buoyant, so a tether is recommended, using the existing 4 rings on the case. USB is accessible via a side port.
