Abstract:
The present study was performed to observe and examine the abdominal organs structure and position by contrast X-ray, ultrasonography and Computed Tomography (CT) and the function of the gastrointestinal tract to establish a basics diagnostic aid to be for use by anatomists, radiologists, surgeons and veterinary students. The stomach, intestine, liver, spleen, the caudal vena cava, portal vein and gall bladder were examined by contrast X-ray, ultrasonography and CT scans in twelve zaraibi goats aging 1-1.5 years and weighing 25-30 kg. The caudal vena cava, portal vein and gall bladder diameters decreased from the 9th to the 12th intercostal spaces through ultrasonographic imaging measurement. The fatty liver infiltration determined by ultrasonography. The radiographic examined the structural pattern of the abdominal organs by contrast X-ray, ultrasonography and computed tomography and the function of the gastrointestinal tract to establish a basics diagnostic aid. The obtained results cleared that contrast X-ray, ultrasonography and CT were safe, practical and easily performed in goat. Both radiographic and ultrasonographic procedures were complimentary in the evaluation of the gastrointestinal tract, spleen and liver condition while CT scans was a superior soft tissue differentiation over conventional X-ray techniques.
