A urinalysis is an evaluation of urine for abnormalities such as kidney disease, urinary tract infection, urinary crystals & bladder stones, diabetes, & even cancer !
@bocamidtownevet when we need a urine sample we use an ultrasound device to find the urinary bladder & get a sample directly from it ! #sonogram
With ultrasound guidance we can easily obtain a fine needle aspirate directly from the bladder aka #cystocentesis
In Morgan’s case, we saw an abnormal bright area (white line) with an associated dark shadow below it that led us to suspect bladder stones. #bladderstones #urolithiasis #cystolithiasis #bladderstonessuck
By simply looking with an ultrasound we were able to take some important steps to further help Morgan with his health !
