About this course

For veterinary surgeons comfortable with basic abdominal ultrasonography and who want to take their skills a step further, this one-day course can help you start to tackle the trickier abdominal organs.

The day will be a mixture 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 gastrointestinal tract, adrenal glands, pancreas and abdominal lymph nodes. You will learn the landmarks to guide you to the subtler organs and we will examine the anatomy of the abdominal vasculature including the use of doppler ultrasonography.


Key learning objectives:

  • Get comfortable with the GI tract – learn to find your way around the stomach, small intestine and large intestine
  • Where to find the adrenal glands and what to look out for
  • Learn the landmarks that help us to locate the pancreas and what to expect
  • Find and examine the major blood vessels and abdominal lymph nodes
  • Put it into practice – get hands-on!


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 if they are able to do so.  Kennelling accommodation for the dogs will be available to use if required. 

It is important that the dogs can be clipped as required for a full abdominal ultrasound exam.

Did you know - every delegate who brings a dog is entered into a prize draw on the course day to win a £75 Amazon voucher??!! 


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.
