This one day course is aimed at nurses (and vets) who have an interest in radiography, and a desire to improve image quality.
We will cover the practical physics of radiography, and why grasping this can help improve image quality. Topics will include the benefits of using grids and why distance is so important; commonly seen artefacts with a selection of example images; a refresher on positioning for thoracic and abdominal radiographs; and then critical evaluation of a wide range of example images.
BCF Technology 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.**
