About the course

This highly interactive and practical two-day
course will focus on how to get the most out of
an abdominal ultrasound examination (including
small abdominal structures). Presentations
on each body system will consider imaging
techniques, normal findings and 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.
The course will include:
 Review of ultrasound machine settings to
optimise image
 Obtaining diagnostic images of abdominal
structures (liver, spleen, stomach, small
intestine, large intestine, kidneys, bladder,
pancreas, adrenals, lymph nodes)
 Appreciating the appearance of common
pathological changes in abdominal
structures with ultrasonography
 Principles of ultrasound guided sampling
(including practice with simulators)
