About this course

Partially positive nerve blocks, ambiguous radiographic findings and equivocal ultrasound images – how to optimise the work up of distal limb lameness.

This webinar will focus on nerve blocks, radiography and ultrasound of the foot, pastern and fetlock region. We look at how to interpret positive and negative responses to each nerve block highlighting potential pitfalls. We also discuss the most useful radiographic projections and tips to improve their diagnostic value, including the use of contrast tenograms. Finally we look at how to ultrasound the region effectively.

Why do this course?
This webinar is particularly useful for those veterinarians seeing lame horses and want to offer their clients a concise and effective workup. Delegates will learn how to interpret each block and how to get the most out of radiographs and ultrasound of the region.
