Ultrasound is still a relatively new method for the diagnosis of abdominal conditions in cattle. The objective of this study is to evaluate ultrasound as a diagnostic tool for the common diseases affecting high-producing dairy cattle, for example traumatic reticuloperitonitis, right- and left displacement of the abomasum, fatty liver, wound infections and abscesses. This paper is a combined litterature study and a report of the results from ultrasound examinations of bovine patients at the ruminant clinic at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. The study includes two healthy cows from the ruminant clinic, and seven patients with abdominal related diseases. The examinations were made with a 2-6 MHz curvilinear transducer and both the right and left sides of the abdomen were scanned. A common denominator for the diseases that are discussed in this paper is that they occur frequently in the bovine population, and that they can be difficult to diagnose correctly. It can also be difficult to make an accurate assessment of the prognosis for these conditions. The latter is important as it often affects the choice of treatment. Ultrasound has proven to be a suitable tool for making a correct diagnosis and prognosis of the above listed diseases.
