Event Description

This program will offer the small animal practitioner an entry level introduction to diagnostic abdominal ultrasound in small animals. The course will help to develop your scanning technique and scanning routine for the basic abdominal ultrasound exam. A review of the practical application of basic ultrasound physics will enable you to optimise image acquisition. The main focus of the course will be on the approach to the larger abdominal organs and recognising normal ultrasonographic anatomy of these organs. Commonly encountered ultrasonographic diagnoses will be discussed.

The two days will consist of lectures followed by guided practical scanning sessions.
