This one-day course is aimed at veterinary surgeons with little or no experience of diagnostic ultrasound and those who feel they could make much more of their ultrasound machine.
It's one for those who find themselves thinking, "If only I knew where to start!"
The day will be a mixture of lectures, demonstrations and practical sessions, with emphasis on getting as much hands-on time as possible. Topics covered will include basic ultrasound physics and machine setup, indications for abdominal ultrasonography, practical ultrasonography of the liver and gall bladder, spleen, kidneys, urinary bladder and GI tract as well as AFAST and TFAST emergency scanning techniques.
Time : 08h30 – 16h30
IMV imaging will provide all the necessary ultrasound equipment. We will also provide lunch for attendees.
Attendees are asked to please bring with a volunteer dog to scan in the practical sessions.
**Without volunteer animals to scan, the practical sessions are pretty dull! No invasive procedures will be performed on the animals, we treat them with love and care throughout the practical sessions.**
