I found that doing the lectures ahead of time was actually more useful than trying to cram everything in on the day. It meant that I had a good idea of what was going to be covered and my brain hadn’t reached saturation point.

About this course

Would you like to improve your ultrasound examination of the hindlimb from pastern to sacroiliac, including ultrasound guided injections?

This course of recorded webinars will be followed by a day of case based discussions and practical sessions. The course is suitable for both the beginner and advanced practitioner. The webinars will cover applied anatomy, different ultrasound techniques and acquisition of diagnostic images. There will be plenty of practical hints and tips to get the most out of your ultrasound examination. The onsite part of the course will involve case discussions and practical sessions including ultrasound guided injection techniques.

Why do this course?
The webinars allow you to learn at your own pace and avoids the long sessions of lectures that most busy vets struggle to stay awake in! They can be listened to at a convenient time, you just need to confirm you have worked through them as a prerequisite for attending the practical component of the course. This allows more practical sessions to be fitted in to the onsite part of the course giving more time for you to have the probe in your hand!
