About this course

Struggling with knowing whether that white bit on the lung is really a problem? Worried that you might miss an intestinal obstruction of a foreign body? Wondering what is this funky looking lesion in the stifle? In other words – would you like to enhance your confidence in interpreting radiographs?

During this course, you will enhance your knowledge of small animal radiology, create your own radiographic reading technique and sharpen your skills at reading radiographs. A variety of radiographic cases will be used for individual review and group discussions. This will enable you to practise your reading technique and to share your experiences while enhancing your skills in assessing radiographs.

Why do this course?
At the end of this course you will have developed your own structured system of evaluating radiographs, acquired experience in reporting and diagnosing common and more challenging radiographic abnormalities and developed a logical approach to reading and interpreting a radiographic study.

Course notes
In line with the RVC’s environmental policy we are trying to reduce our use of paper, therefore we will not be supplying printed course notes. The course notes will be available electronically as a downloadable pdf on the course which can be printed.
