Back to Basics: Diagnostic Ultrasound Workshop

All you need to know and understand to get you scanning with confidence.

Gain confidence with your ultrasound by understanding the principles and applying these in a practical hands-on one day workshop. Your expert tutor Mariano Makara will help you develop a greater understanding of diagnostic ultrasonology to allow you to conquer your fears and scan with confidence.

This course is designed to provide participants with basic principles of abdominal ultrasonography. Topics covered in this workshop will help participants acquire high‑quality images and interpret common diseases of the abdomen. Lectures will review basic physics of diagnostic ultrasound, principles of image formation, and interpretation of principles. The practical component will include scanning dogs in groups of no more than 3 people.

Note: This 1-day workshop can be attended on either Friday 8 or Saturday 9 September.

Mariano Makara earned his veterinary degree at the University of La Plata, Argentina. In January 2005, he began a radiology internship with Ross University, School of Veterinary Medicine, under the guidance and direction of Dr. Joe Morgan, where a significant part of his responsibilities included reading radiographs and performing ultrasound examinations. He then moved to the University of Zurich in Switzerland where he completed a residency program in diagnostic imaging and passed his certification exams for the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging in March 2010. Following this he was promoted to Assistant Professor at the University of Zurich where he was responsible for each of the diagnostic modalities including diagnostic radiology, ultrasound, and CT in both small and large animals. He has also served as an Associate Professor at St. George’s University. His research interests have centred around computed tomography angiography and he has completed research projects in thoracic computed tomography angiography contrast medium injection technique and use in diagnosis of infections with Angiostrongylus vasorum in dogs. Mariano is currently the Senior Lecturer in Diagnostic Imaging, at the Faculty of Veterinary Science, Sydney University.
