Ultrasonography is an advanced diagnostic technique.

Ultrasonography of the thorax and abdomen can be very useful as part of a diagnostic work-up in ill tigers. It is recommended that a clinician with extensive ultrasonography experience performs the scan. Views are the same as those for domestic dogs and cats. For adult tigers a 3.5MHz convex probe is recommended.
