Ultrasound Consent Form First Name* Last Name* Owner's Name* Pet's Name* Primary Contact Phone Number* Please select...*HomeCellWorkWe are performing an abdominal ultrasound on your pet today. Abnormalities of organs are sometimes found that would indicate the need for fine needle aspirates (FNA) to help determine a diagnosis. Some areas have very little pain sensation (i.e.liver, discrete masses, lymph nodes, spleen) and as such, a very cooperative patient may not need any sedation for aspiration of an abnormal tissue. On the other hand, some patients require sedation to keep them still during the procedure. If we do find abnormalities on the abdominal ultrasound that dictate the need for FNAs please indicate your choice by initialing ONE of the following: Proceed with FNAs without any phone call, sedation is approved if needed (additional cost: FNA - $55, Cytological evaluation by a pathologist $200, sedation if needed $30-40). Please call to discuss findings prior to proceeding with FNAs. Please be advised we will attempt to call you at the number you provided above, please try to be available by phone.
