Abdominal Ultrasound Workshop
Get the foundations in abdominal ultrasound you need to do more for your patients. Learn from outstanding specialist educators where the ‘see one, do one, teach one’ learning philosophy is at the core of this workshop. Gain hands on practice with the probe, locating landmarks and building a systematic approach to scanning your patients. A great machine can only be effective if the user knows how to use it.
Do you struggle with…
- What is normal and abnormal on ultrasound?
- Knowing what settings to change to optimise your image?
- How to systematically approach a diagnostic ultrasound assessment?
What if you had an opportunity to practice first-hand the key techniques to successful diagnostic ultrasound?
Spend hands-on time practicing on a variety of dogs to get a solid foundation of normal ultrasound appearance. You will learn how to scan each different organ structure on multiple planes and develop skills in enhancing your diagnostic images. You’ll trace the ureters to/from the kidney, scan the length of the GIT and even locate the adrenals. Gain the skills you need to start scanning back in the clinic.
