Here we would like to introduce you to an interesting research project, which we would like to support with it:
http://sarcoma-ultrasonography.jimdo.com/ to look around and to get further information about the topic.
The idea behind this project arose years ago, when we faced the sobering fact that, with the exception of imaging techniques such as CT or MRI, there are no adequate methods to unequivocally diagnose or early detect osteosarcomas in dogs. It was also noticeable that sonography plays a very underdeveloped role here.
In order to investigate a suitable cancer screening in canine osteosarcoma (OSA), it is first necessary to take a closer look at the most common methods of imaging with the associated advantages and disadvantages, whereby the following criteria were considered:
The method already discovered in 1895 by the German scientist Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen is currently the most common method for the representation of different tissue structures with the help of so-called X-ray radiation. As with all radioactive substances, radiation exposure is also present in X-ray radiation.
Since the creation of an X-ray image takes only a few seconds, often a prior sedation of the patient can be dispensed with.
