AbdoPLUS: a step further in small animal abdominal ultrasound – Exeter – 10th November 2020

Save to MyIMV

Course information

Course Description

This course is aimed at veterinary surgeons comfortable with basic abdominal ultrasonography wanting to take their skills a step further. This one-day course will teach you to refine your technique enabling you to tackle the trickier abdominal organs.

The day comprises a combination of lectures and practical sessions, aiming to give as much hands-on time using an ultrasound machine as possible.

Throughout the course we will learn the normal and pathological appearance of the adrenal glands, pancreas and lymph nodes with a more in-depth approach to examining the gastrointestinal tract. You will learn the landmarks to guide you to the organs with a more subtle ultrasonographic appearance and we will examine the anatomy of the abdominal vasculature including the use of doppler ultrasonography.

 

Course Objectives

  • Get comfortable with the GI tract – learn to find your way around the stomach, small intestine (including duodenum and ileum), ileo-ceco-colic junction and colon.
  • Where to find the adrenal glands including relevant anatomical landmarks.
  • Learn the landmarks that help us to locate the pancreas and how to identify normal vs abnormal.
  • Find and examine the major blood vessels and abdominal lymph nodes, learn how to follow blood vessels and identify lymph nodes.
  • Put it into practice – use the techniques and knowledge gained on the day to practice your ultrasound skills on real dogs.

 

Equipment and Facilities

IMV imaging will provide all the necessary ultrasound equipment.

**Please note that because of the difficulty providing animals for scanning, delegates are kindly requested to bring a friendly dog with them for the duration of the day. It is important that the dogs can be clipped as appropriate for a complete abdominal ultrasound exam.**

 

Schedule

The day will be informal and relaxed with maximum time for hands-on learning. Arrive for tea and coffee from 8:30am, ready to begin the lecture at 9am. We’ll aim to finish the day by 4.30pm. This will count for 6 hours of CPD. Places are limited to a maximum of 12 delegates so book your place early to avoid disappointment. Course notes, refreshments and lunch will be provided.
