“I’ve done the echo, now what?!”

Developing proficiency in practical echocardiography is a challenge in itself, but obtaining good images is only the start. The purpose of echocardiography is to help with clinical decision-making. This course will focus on how to use the results of your echocardiography to make better clinical decisions on a day to day basis in canine and feline patients with suspected heart disease. It is designed to be suitable for participants with some echocardiography experience, but practical skills will be covered in detail in the companion course on the following day (‘Practical echocardiography scanning days’) so it isn’t essential for you to already be an expert echocardiographer to get something out of this course.

The role of echocardiography will be critically evaluated in a problem-based approach, looking at common presenting problems in dogs and cats. For each diagnostic challenge, the role of other diagnostic tests will also be reviewed, as well as guidance on treatment.

Why do this course?
Many courses focus solely on echocardiographic imaging and measurements, but this course will show you how to apply your echo imaging to get the best outcome for your patients.
