Contrast-enhanced ultrasonography images of the transverse view of the right pancreatic lobe (p) and mucosa of the descending duodenum adjacent to the right pancreas (d) (both outlined by dotted lines) in 2 representative dogs with pancreatitis (dorsal to the left, ventral to the right, medial to the bottom). (A) Image acquired at 69 seconds after start of contrast agent infusion showing the pancreas at peak intensity. The pancreas is swollen with irregular outlines, and is enhanced nonhomogeneously. Apart from the cranial pancreaticoduodenal vein (v) normally seen, fine pancreatic capillaries are also more prominently enhanced (arrows). Clinical signs of vomiting ceased and activity improved after 4 days of hospitalization and medical treatment. Lipase activity returned to reference range within 10 days. (B) Image acquired at 67 seconds after start of contrast agent infusion showing 2 nonenhancing lesions (arrowheads) in the pancreatic parenchyma. This dog recovered from the acute episode of pancreatitis and was discharged after 10 days of hospitalization and medical treatment. However, lipase activity and C-reactive protein did not return to reference ranges until 46 days and 25 days, respectively.

A  transverse  ultrasound  image  through  the  right  lateral  abdominal wall with the dog in left ventral recumbency. A round, hypoechoic  mass  (T)  is  visible  medial  to  the  duodenum  (D).  This primary pancreatic tumor was not identified with CT and SPECT.
