Diagnostic Imaging
Evaluation of clinical and diagnostic imaging findings of bilateral superficial digital flexor tendon luxation in the tarsus of a gelding

Amin Anoushepour; Saeideh Eftekhari; Majid Masoudifard

Volume 14, Issue 10 , October 2023, , Pages 579-582

  Superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT) plays an important role in the locomotion of the horses with flexion of the limbs. In the hind limb, it passes over the calcaneal bone and attaches to medial and lateral surfaces of calcaneous by two bands of connective tissue; while, the medial band is weaker ...  Read More

Echocardiographic assessment of intravenous administration of medetomidine and xylazine hydrochloride at different sedative doses in one-humped camel calves (Camelus dromedarious)

Mohammad Reza Esmaili Nejad; Majid Masoudifard; Omid Azari; Ehsanollah Sakhaee; Nima Ghalekhani

Volume 13, Issue 1 , March 2022, , Pages 39-46

  Echocardiography illustrates a convenient and noninvasive tool for measuring cardiac output (CO) changes after administration of sedative drugs, but it is unknown in camelids practice. The aim of present study was to investigate echocardiographic effects of intravenous (IV) injection of medetomidine ...  Read More

Measuring morphological parameters of the pelvic diaphragm muscles using computed tomography in healthy dogs

Mohammad Sadegh Ashtari; Abbas Veshkini; Majid Masoudifard; Hassan Gilanpour; Alireza Bahonar

Volume 12, Issue 4 , December 2021, , Pages 493-496

  Evaluation of pelvic diaphragm muscles in dogs merits clinical attention because of the anatomical importance and their involvement in perineal hernia. This study aimed to evaluate the normal pelvic diaphragm muscles (levator ani and coccygeus muscles) using the computed tomography (CT) scan. For this ...  Read More

Two-dimensional and M-mode echocardiographic parameters in Ghezel sheep

Ali Roustaei; Seyed Mohammad Hashemiasl; Bahram Dalir-Naghadeh; Majid Masoudifard

Volume 12, Issue 3 , September 2021, , Pages 349-355

  Echocardiography is a non-invasive method of cardiac evaluation in most species. Echocardiographic reference parameters are poorly documented in sheep and not documented in Ghezel sheep. The purpose of this study was to determine reference ranges of normal echocardiographic parameters using two-dimensional ...  Read More

Development and evaluation of methods for vertebral heart score ‎determination in guinea pig (Cavia porcellus)‎

Majid Masoudifard; Amir Rostami; Masoumeh Shahmohamadi Nodolaghi; Mohammad Reza Esmaili Nejad; Alireza Bahonar

Volume 12, Issue 3 , September 2021, , Pages 357-360

  Cardiac problems are highly fetal diseases among exotic animals, not only in the rabbit which is prone to such diseases but also in the guinea pig (Cavia porcellus). In rodents, imaging studies such as thoracic radiography are more practical and easier to perform than echocardiography. Cardiac size is ...  Read More

Clinical Pathology
Aggressive chondroblastic osteosarcoma in a dog: A case report

Mohammad Reza Esmaili Nejad; Rana Vafaei; Majid Masoudifard; Seyed Mahdi Nasiri; Atena Salimi

Volume 10, Issue 4 , December 2019, , Pages 361-364

  Canine osteosarcoma (OS) or osteogenic sarcoma is an aggressive tumor of the skeletal system, associated with a rapid progression and guarded prognosis. The osteosarcomas, mostly arise from the appendicular skeleton while axial OS (osteosarcoma of flat bones) are less reported in the majority of large ...  Read More
