Two-day course designed for veterinary surgeons with basic or limited experience of diagnostic ultrasound.

Program

The course will include ultrasonography of the normal abdominal organs, including the liver, spleen, gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary tracts. The most useful ultrasonographic measurements needed in assessments and clinical diagnosis and some common pathological conditions will also be considered.

Delegates will also gain a practical understanding of the physics of ultrasound, ultrasound machine set up and how to choose an ultrasound machine for their own practice.

Both days include practical ‘hands-on’ scanning, accompanying notes and resources and the opportunity to liaise closely with the internal medicine and imaging specialists involved.
