Our Bootcamps are fast paced, hands-on and extremely effective. Bootcamps are divided into Bootcamp Part 1 (intro) and Bootcamp Part 2 (advanced). By combining didactic and hands-on wet labs, the entire Bootcamp program is designed to cater to all skill levels. You will enhance the skills you already have, or learn something entirely new for your practice!

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.

Veterinary Scan Days are half-day ultrasound review workshops. Participants can expect to spend the day scanning sedated patients, working closely with our team of OVC Radiology specialists, reviewing and performing the scanning protocols and procedures originally introduced during Ultrasound Bootcamp. Class sizes are strictly limited in order to provide the one-on-one, in depth instruction you are looking for. Scan only workshops are held throughout the year are designed to supplement and provide extra practice between Ultrasound Bootcamp sessions, or for those that just want some additional training or scanning experience.

Who should attend a Veterinary Ultrasound Review Workshop?

  • You have taken Bootcamp Part 1 and want extra practice time before you attend Part 2.
  • You have had some previous ultrasound training, but feel you need a little help perfecting your skills.
  • You took Bootcamp Part 1 and 2 with us, but it was a few years ago and now you would just like to review the lab lessons and boost your confidence.

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.
