VetPD - Veterinary Professional Development
Date: Saturday 29th April, 2023 - Sunday 30th April, 2023
Start time: 8:30 AM - 6:00 PM
Duration: 2 hour(s)
This two-day practical course was developed for practitioners with a good working knowledge in equine radiography/radiology who are keen to acquire helpful tips and tricks to further develop their skills in the field of equine musculoskeletal imaging. The equine diagnostic imaging clinicians will discuss each anatomic region by comparing radiography with other complementary imaging modalities accessible to equine practitioners (up and foremost ultrasound, but also MRI & CT) through which additional information can be gained. The panel of world-renowned specialists will share common technical pitfalls, practical tips and tricks, erroneous image interpretations and pearls of wisdom openly and honestly with the attendees through lectures, practical sessions and extensive case-discussions. The use of comparative imaging as part of the prepurchase examination will also be discussed.
As part of the 9 hours of case-discussions and x-ray wetlabs on live horses attendees will get plenty of opportunities to further their radiography skills at the following stations:
X-ray Tips & Tricks – Foot, Pastern & Fetlock
Ultrasound of the Coffin, Pastern or Fetlock Joints on live horses
