Preparing the Animal
Before you use the ultrasound machine, ensure the farm animal is appropriately restrained and comfortable. Apply a suitable ultrasound gel to the animal’s skin, allowing the ultrasound waves to penetrate and produce clear images. Take your time and move the probe gently over the designated area to capture images of the internal structures. For example, the reproductive organs or organs of interest for health assessment.
After capturing ultrasound images, interpret the results based on your knowledge of the anatomy. Familiarize yourself with common ultrasound findings and be prepared to troubleshoot any issues that may arise during the process. Regularly clean and maintain the ultrasound machine to ensure consistent performance and longevity.
