Develop an ordered and logical approach to imaging and evaluation of the abdomen.
This course focuses on a radiographic approach to abdominal imaging but will be supplemented with discussion of other imaging modalities. The usefulness of ultrasonography will be explored for imaging abdominal viscera and, where relevant, the application of other diagnostic tools such as computer tomography (CT) will be discussed and demonstrated.
Develop an ordered approach to imaging the vomiting dog or cat and gain an appreciation for the imaging appearances of common abdominal diseases. Dogs and cats are discussed with tutor-written notes, case studies, self-assessed quizzes and individual feedback enhancing the application of your learning. Make the most of the online forum to ask questions and share cases. Get to know your tutor and colleagues at the one-day face to face workshop.
The course assumes that you have some experience with radiography. Additionally, the course includes a self-paced introduction that will cover key pre-requisites.
An excellent course which allowed me to make much more confident decisions in my clinical work.
