Part 1: Introduction to Companion Animal Abdominal Ultrasound

In this course participants will learn how to perform a full abdominal ultrasound including liver, spleen, urogenital system, gastrointestinal tract, adrenal glands and lymph nodes.  Participants will also be given the guiding principles and techniques for ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration and biopsies and an opportunity to practice these techniques in the lab using a phantom.  The objectives of the course are:

  • To provide the participants with a foundation in how to perform a complete ultrasound examination and how to appropriately document the study for submission to a radiologist.
  • Understand the indications for and limitations of abdominal ultrasonography
  • Be able to perform ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration and biopsy

The course is designed for both the beginner and those who may have scanned before but would like a refresher.

Part 2: Interpretation of Abdominal Ultrasonography in Veterinary Medicine

In this course the participants will learn the ultrasonographic appearances of common diseases of all the organ systems.  The emphasis will be how to differentiate non-specific ultrasonographic findings from those that are more specific for a given disease and determining the next appropriate diagnostic or treatment steps. The objectives of the course are:

  • To understand the ultrasonographic manifestations of disease in the major abdominal systems
  • To improve on ultrasound scanning skills through supervised practice

The course is designed for those who have either taken a previous introductory course where the basics of scanning have been covered, or have a considerable amount of previous scanning experience as the mechanics of how to conduct an ultrasound examination will not be specifically reviewed.
