This course is aimed at veterinary surgeons comfortable with basic abdominal ultrasonography wanting to take their skills a step further. This one-day course will teach you to refine your technique enabling you to tackle the trickier abdominal organs.
The day comprises a combination of lectures and practical sessions, aiming to give as much hands-on time using an ultrasound machine as possible.
Throughout the course we will learn the normal and pathological appearance of the adrenal glands, pancreas and lymph nodes with a more in-depth approach to examining the gastrointestinal tract. You will learn the landmarks to guide you to the organs with a more subtle ultrasonographic appearance and we will examine the anatomy of the abdominal vasculature including the use of doppler ultrasonography.
Equipment and Facilities
IMV imaging will provide all the necessary ultrasound equipment.
**Please note that because of the difficulty providing animals for scanning, delegates are kindly requested to bring a friendly dog with them for the duration of the day. It is important that the dogs can be clipped as appropriate for a complete abdominal ultrasound exam.**
The day will be informal and relaxed with maximum time for hands-on learning. Arrive for tea and coffee from 8:30am, ready to begin the lecture at 9am. We’ll aim to finish the day by 4.30pm. This will count for 6 hours of CPD. Places are limited to a maximum of 12 delegates so book your place early to avoid disappointment. Course notes, refreshments and lunch will be provided.
