Through interactive lectures, discussions and a hands-on practical, we will guide you through this one-day workshop focusing on practical echo-based diagnosis and monitoring of cardiology cases in a first-opinion setting. Lecture topics include how to get the best out of your machine, right-sided views (2D, M-mode assessment) and colour flow and spectral Doppler Echocardiography, mainly from left-sided views. The practical echo sessions on live dogs will be tailored to each delegate’s experience and current skill level to help them achieve their learning outcomes. Case-based interactive discussions will allow interpretation of images from a variety of clinical cardiac cases. Delegate numbers are limited to ensure personalised hands-on guidance during the practical sessions.
