Radiographs of the foot of a dog who had been lame for a few months. A rubber band had been accidentally placed around the dog's foot a few months prior, and the tension caused it to erode through the skin and put pressure on the bones of the foot. The crescent shaped defects (arrows) are from the constant pressure of the rubber band.
Ultrasound pictures of the rubber band that had slowly worked it's way under the skin of the paw of a dog. The ultrasound allowed the surgeon to identify the rubber band easily and remove it.
Lateral radiograph (xray) of a portogram: The white contrast material was injected into a surgically placed catheter which shows the abnormal flow of blood around the liver and into the heart. The blood that bypasses the liver in this way cannot be filtered by the liver, and this causes signs of illness. The metallic ring (arrows) is the corrective device the surgeons placed around the abnormal blood vessel, which will slowly block the abnormal blood flow, allowing the dog to live a normal life.
