A first for South Africa, this comprehensive two-day course is aimed at veterinary surgeons who have attended our basic and next level ultrasound courses before and/or feel confident in their basic ultrasound skills. If you are comfortable with the sonographic assessment of the liver, spleen, kidneys and bladder and have ventured into more intermediate scanning, this course is for you.
This course will help you gain the knowledge and practical skills to develop your ultrasound examinations of the small animal abdomen further. Through a mixture of lectures and hands-on scanning time, you will learn the practical approaches to ‘the trickier bits’. Techniques for scanning the adrenals, pancreas, abdominal lymph nodes and abdominal vasculature will be taught, as well as the assessment of the gastro-intestinal and urogenital tracts to an advanced level. Less commonly scanned areas such as the chest, neck and selected musculoskeletal areas, will also be included.
The course will be taught by Dr Nicolette Hayward BVM&S DVR DipECVDI MRCVS. As with all our courses we pride ourselves on our practical content, and dynamic and approachable teachers.
Time : 08h30 – 16h30 on both days
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.**
