Course description

Practical Medical and Orthopaedic Ultrasound

Day One is an introduction to diagnostic ultrasound in equine medical cases. The day starts with a lecture on how to get the most out of your ultrasound machine and how to avoid common pitfalls. A series of interactive lectures follow, covering abdominal, thoracic and ocular ultrasonography with the group then dividing into small group sessions for some hands-on scanning under supervision to put these skills into practice. There will be ample opportunity to practice what you have learnt on a variety of horses with a range of scanners.

Day Two is an introduction to diagnostic ultrasound in orthopaedic disease. A series of lectures in the morning cover common diseases of the distal limb, including superficial flexor tendonitis, suspensory and AL-DDFT desmitis, and the ultrasound anatomy of the lower limb, carpal sheath and tarsal region. The afternoon is spent working in small groups, rotating through hands-on practical scanning of the forelimb and hindlimb with ample time to work on skills taught in the lectures, leaving you both confident and competent in orthopaedic ultrasound of the equine patient.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The workshop is suitable for those working at advanced practitioner level or studying for an RCVS CertAVP.
