Abstract

High‐resolution, real‐time ultrasonographic examinations of the neck were performed on eight normal dogs maintained under general anesthesia. Water‐soluble dye was injected into imaged structures under sonographic guidance in two dogs. The anatomy of the neck was verified at postmortem by visualization of dye deposited in the injected structures. Anatomical mapping was then completed by performing complete cervical ultrasound examinations in the remaining six dogs. Normal ultrasonographic anatomy of the canine neck and major anatomic landmarks useful in clinical imaging are described.
