Would you like to learn more about CT and MRI, how they work and their applications in veterinary practice?
This course will cover CT and MRI and their applications in veterinary practice, delving deeper into the physics of how these modalities work and how Registered Veterinary Nurses can utilise these in practice. Through the use of cases studies, videos and online discussions, RVNs will develop their knowledge and understanding of these machines, with a view to assist with these procedures in practice, allowing them to play a vital role in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
Why do this course?
Use of CT and MRI is becoming more widespread in veterinary practice and the veterinary nurses’ role in this area is slowly increasing, with some RVNs moving towards specialising solely in imaging. Advanced imaging is not covered in detail in standard veterinary nursing training leaving a gap in the knowledge of RVNs who may then be working with these machines. We aim to provide you with the knowledge and understanding of how these machines work, the basis of their operation and how to assess images in terms of diagnostic quality.
