Some Imaging Anatomical Ultrasonographic Features of the Liver in Domestic Rabbit (Oryctolagus cunicuclus)
A. Russenov, K. Stamatova - Yovcheva, R. Dimitrov
Abstract: We studied nine sexually matured, healthy New Zealand white rabbits. The animals were positioned in supine recumbence. The sonographic approach was transabdominal percutaneous hypochondrial. The liver of four investigated animals was extirpated, following euthanasia and studied in liquid isotonic medium, in order to compare its ultrasonographic characters with these of its normal topography. The rabbit liver was an echoic structure with regular contours, close to the hyperechoic diaphragm. The liver parenchyma showed heterogeneous echogenicity. The gall bladder was observed as a longitudinal oval finding, filled with anechoic content, and its wall was hypoechoic.
