Abdominal Ultrasound 24th November

 

Esther Barratt MA VetMB DVDI DipECVDI MRCVS

 

RCVS & European Specialist in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging

 

Ultrasound is a very useful non-invasive diagnostic imaging modality, widely used in the evaluation of the small animal abdomen.

 

This one-day course is aimed at veterinary surgeons who are reasonably comfortable with the use of ultrasonography for performing a basic abdominal exam and who would like the opportunity both to review the basics and to begin to explore further.

 

The day is a mixture of lectures and practical sessions, with the emphasis being on getting as much hands-on time as possible. As well as briefly reviewing the ultrasonographic evaluation of the liver, spleen and uro-genital tract, topics covered will include ultrasonography of the gastrointestinal tract, adrenal glands, pancreas and lymph nodes.

 

9am-5pm at the Business Space, Launceston

 

£350 including course notes, breakfast, lunch and refreshments.
