Do you want to learn how to perform an abdominal ultrasound exam in small animals? Are you looking to improve your scanning technique? Are you not sure how to get the best out of your ultrasound unit?
This course is an entry level introduction to diagnostic abdominal ultrasound in small animals. The course will help to develop your scanning techniques and routines. It will guide you through a structured approach to ultrasound examination of the abdomen, help you to utilise your ultrasound unit to optimise image quality and allow you to recognise artefacts that may be encountered.
The main focus of the course will be on the approach to the larger abdominal organs (liver, gall bladder, kidney, spleen, bladder, gastrointestinal tract) and recognising normal ultrasonographic anatomy of these organs. Commonly encountered ultrasonographic diagnoses will be discussed.
Why do this course?
Reviewing the normal ultrasonographic anatomy and common disease patterns will give you confidence to further integrate abdominal ultrasonography in your practice.
Please note this is a popular course with limited spaces so book early to avoid disappointment.
