Abstract

Background: The Ultrasonograph of spleen in live goats were studied using a convex probe 2.5 to 5 MHz Colour Doppler Mylab onevet (e-saote) German Ultrasound Scanner in Veterinary Clinical Complex, Veterinary College and Research Institute, Namakkal.
Methods: The extent of spleen in live goats when examined by USG revealed differences from the usual gross anatomical observations made in the embalmed or exsanguinated goats. The parietal surface of spleen was in direct contact with the pulmonary diaphragm while the ventral visceral surface lay over the cranial part of dorsal sac of the rumen.
Result: The capsule was highly echogenic while the parenchyma consisted of numerous weak echoes distributed homogenously. The splenic vessels were anechoic with hyperechoic walls and appeared as longitudinal or cross sections. The greatest length was found at 11th intercostal space during the post-natal age of three to five months which was about 6 cm. The greatest length was found at 10th intercostal space during the post-natal age of eight to twelve months which was about 7 cm. The greatest length was found at 9th intercostal space during the post-natal age above one year which was about 9 to 15 cm. During the post-natal age above one year the smallest length was found to be behind the last rib which was about 4 cm in adult goats.
