About This Course

This course is designed for veterinarians who ultrasound animals at least once every other week. The course will review basic physics, but most of the course time will emphasize abnormalities found within the abdomen. Minimal time will be spent on the use of the ultrasound machine, instead, scanning techniques and pathology will be the focus of this course. By the end of this course, you should have the ability to do a complete ultrasound examination and recognize routine pathology.

Learning Objectives

  1. The purpose of this 3-day laboratory series is to provide in-depth knowledge and adequate time to expand the sonographers skill set.

  2. The goal of this course is not to provide you the ability to make comprehensive diagnoses of disease, but rather to expand your knowledge of disease appearances while ensuring that you are conducting a complete and thorough examination that can be interpreted by either yourself or board-certified specialists.
