Abstract

To characterize the sonographic appearance of the abdominal organs in primates, a program of routine imaging and diagnostic evaluation was undertaken. Compound B mode methodology with bistable and grey scale machines was employed utilizing a 2.25 to 3.5 MHz transducer focused at 7 cm. Visualization of the liver, gallbladder, spleen, kidney and of intraabdominal pathology is described. The stage, position, and condition of a pregnancy can be determined by this methodology.
