Museum of Kent Life


This is an example of how AUA members can document their work to share with clients.

This scan was performed in 2014, at the Museum of Kent Life, with Yvette Lovis.

In ruminants, placentation occurs through attachment points called placentomes. Placentomes consist of the foetal cotyledon, and the maternal caruncle, seen in the scan image below.

At this late stage in gestation (4 months), it was even possible to find one lamb's kidney!

The video clip shows a lamb's heart beating. Note the acoustic shadowing distal to the spine and ribs. You can learn more about acoustic impedence and why this happens in the article here
