Quality Diagnostics By Trusted Professionals

Mettasound Veterinary Imaging is a mobile ultrasound company serving small animal veterinarians in the greater Austin region since 2006. Mettasound offers abdominal ultrasound, echocardiography, radiograph consults, ECG, blood pressure and ultrasound guidance for cytology.

Mettasound offers both abdominal and cardiac studies. Using the same workflow used in the human field, diagnostic still and video clips obtained by a professional sonographer are reviewed by board certified cardiologists, radiologists, internists for consultation. Complete history, laboratory findings and radiographs are also included for the specialist to review along with ultrasound images. This allows for enhanced diagnostic efficiency by reducing the need for unnecessary referrals and higher costs.

Ultrasound is a user dependant modality and as such, is only as good as the individual performing it. We at Mettasound firmly believe that experience is what matters the most. Our veterinary sonographers have over 40 years of combined veterinary scanning experience and have performed well over thirty thousand scans. In addition, the majority of our team is comprised of ARDMS sonographers which demonstrates a proven level of competence. The ARDMS has been the premier national licensing agency for diagnostic medical sonographers since 1975. ARDMS sonographers are highly skilled professionals whose expertise lies in understanding clinical data and obtaining and analyzing sonographic findings throughout the course of the examination so that a comprehensive exam is completed and provided to the specialist for formal reporting and consult.

You can be assured that your patients and animal companions will receive the same high quality diagnostic scan as performed on our human family members.
