Central CPD

3 weeks ago

Date: Thursday 23rd February, 2023 - Friday 24th February, 2023
Start time: 9:30 AM - 5:30 PM
Cost: £1175

This two-day practical course will cover machine set up, which probe to use and how to optimise the image to make sure you can get the best out of your machine in practice.

Body systems covered will include the liver and gallbladder, spleen, GI tract and urogenital tract, learning how to recognise what is normal and how to classify any abnormalities noted.

Delegates will learn how to achieve standard views of the abdomen, which measurements are useful to take and what they mean when making a diagnosis.

This course will give delegates the confidence to perform diagnostic abdominal ultrasound in practice on a wide variety of cases.

Topics to be covered include:

The ultrasound machine – how to use the machine to its best effect
Familiarising yourself with the normal in order to recognise the abnormal
Imaging the liver, gallbladder, spleen, GI tract and urogenital tract
Useful measurements to take, how to take them and what they mean
As we aim to keep group numbers small and the course has a large practical element, we would ask delegates to bring along an appropriate dog to scan so that we can scan a broad range of cases and give the dogs time out as needed.

**Financial incentive given to delegates following the course, who attend with a suitable dog(s)**
If you can bring a dog we still have some places available. book here.

Please note: This course is now sold out. We have places available on the same course on 29th & 30th June 2023.
