About this course

Feeling a little unsure about how to interpret the abdominal radiograph of the dog or cat with a painful abdomen?

Today many diagnostic modalities are available in veterinary practice to evaluate the abdomen of the patient, including radiographs, ultrasound, CT and cintigraphy. What information does each modality deliver and how do I utilise the modalities best to optimise my diagnostic approach? This course will help you to sharpen your skills by working through the abdominal anatomy and disease patterns using the different diagnostic imaging tools.

Why do this course?
By working thoroughly through many cases you will learn how best to utilise radiographs, ultrasound, CT and scintigraphy in your diagnostic approach to the abdomen of your small animal patients.
