 Lymphoma shows diversity in its morphology and behavior in the cat, despite being one of the most common cancers affecting this species. Imaging is required to assist with accurate staging of the disease and ultrasound using a high frequency transducer will allow staging of many forms of the disease. This presentation will focus on how round cell neoplasia (lymphoma and others) looks on ultraound in the cat, focussing mostly on the abdomen with some reference to the thorax. 

Attendees will see an image-rich presentation that highlights the different appearances of lymphoma and learn about the speaker's approach to diagnostics for these cases.  

In particular, a clear review of the latest imaging for intestinal lymphoma will be presented. Understanding the typical imaging appearance of high grade and low grade alimentary lymphoma will help clinicians to select the best sampling method (needle aspirates or biopsy). No imaging features of lymphoma are pathognomonic and the presentation will also discuss other differentials (neoplastic and non-neoplastic) that may appear similar to the imaging features of lymphoma.
