Ultrasound of the Equine Upper Limb, Neck, Back & Pelvis - A 2-Day Practical Course
Provided by VetPD - Veterinary Professional Development
About the course
This course was developed to provide attendees with the theoretical knowledge and the practical skills of ultrasound image acquisition and interpretation of the upper front- and hindlimbs, the poll, neck, withers, back and pelvis. It is suitable for vets from equine or mixed practice who are keen to further develop their equine ultrasound expertise. The panel of internationally renowned speakers/instructors has a wealth of experience and will share common diagnostic pitfalls, erroneous image interpretations, practical tips and pearls of wisdom open and honestly with the attendees. There will be plenty of opportunity for attendees to put theory into practice in small groups (2 – 4 vetsper ultrasound machine) on live horses and equine specimens during the 7 hours of practical sessions. Each attendee will rotate through the following practical stations: Shoulder joint & bicipital bursa, stifle joint region, poll & neck, withers & back, percutaneous ultrasound of hip & pelvis and transrectal ultrasound of the lumbosacroiliac region & pelvis.
