About this course

Would you like to be able to take better diagnostic radiographs of the head, neck, back and pelvis and better still, be able to interpret them with more confidence?

This course will cover the essentials of equine radiography and radiology of the head, neck and back.

For each area, the practical approach on how to get the best images will be shown as well as how to optimise the quality of the images with portable x-ray machines in conjunction with CR and DR systems. We will discuss radiographic anatomy and radiographic pitfalls using 3D models. Participants can assess their radiographic knowledge with the help of interactive, online quizzes.

Radiographic cases covering the most common, but also not so common, lesions will be presented for individual study, which will enhance the participants’ skills in examining, detecting and describing radiographic lesions. Improvement in radiographic interpretation skills will be assessed by comparison of participant answers to model reports including illustrated images. Online group discussions will enable participants to share their opinions and experiences. Radiographic findings will be discussed in relation to their clinical significance with respect to the medical evidence available. The online format will enable participants to engage in the course in their own time to accommodate the variable working hours of equine practice.

Why do this course?
You will be involved in a multifaceted online tutored learning experience that will improve your knowledge about taking and interpreting radiographs of the head, neck and back.
