Introduction to Small Animal Ultrasound


Course Information

School Entrance

This highly interactive and practical one-day course will focus on how to get the most out of ultrasound machines, and how to image the major abdominal organs and the heart.  Presentations on each body system will consider imaging techniques, normal findings and a brief overview of common pathological changes.  These are followed by practical scanning sessions supported by experienced tutors.  Delegates will have the chance to use a range of ultrasound machines and get plenty of opportunity to practice their technique on live dogs.
