Prepare To Astound With Your Ultrasound: Ultrasonography For The Non-Radiologist
Available for RACE approved CE credit if watched from 11:15AM – 12:05PM PST on Thursday, October 7, 2021.
Ultrasound is a staple of veterinary medicine diagnostics and the bulk majority of skill at ultrasound comes down to mentorship and practice. However knowledge of ultrasound and pathology is equally important. Ultrasound has become increasingly more common outside of tertiary institutions as skill level and interest of community practioners increases and cost of quality ultrasound equipment is more reasonable. This lecture is aimed at a general audience regardless of their current ultrasound skill level. This lecture will outline pertinent ultrasound equipment considerations and discussion of routine abdominal ultrasound procedure with a focus on the “Big 5” organs- the kidneys, liver, spleen and urinary bladder. This lecture will then be followed by multiple real life cases with case history, initial clinical work up, sonographic and diagnosis. Attendee participation in case discussion is strongly encouraged.
