0955a Advanced Abdominal Ultrasound
About this course
This course is aimed at general practitioners who are already confident in performing a basic abdominal ultrasound examination and who now feel ready to approach the more challenging areas of the small animal abdomen. The day will be comprised of several short lectures, explaining the logical approach, normal appearance and common abnormalities of the organs being evaluated, interspersed with longer practical sessions, allowing you to get as much supervised hands-on scanning as possible.
What you’ll learn:
- Gain plenty of confidence in your ability to systematically evaluate the gastrointestinal tract
- Be able to logically search for the adrenals and the pancreas
- How to locate and follow the major vessels through the abdomen
- How to locate and evaluate the major abdominal lymph nodes
