About this course
An opportunity for veterinarians who have attended the Abdominal ultrasonography online to practice their skills and consolidate learning. This is course is scheduled for Wednesday 12th June 2024. Please email [email protected] to register your interest.

You have been to courses, listened to lectures, watched videos and tried on your own. Now enhance your learning and come to the RVC to practise doing a basic abdominal ultrasound examination.

Many veterinarians are keen to develop their knowledge and skills in abdominal ultrasonography as it is such a useful diagnostic tool in general practice. These abdominal practical scanning days are for veterinary surgeons with limited ultrasound experience or simply veterinarians that would like to fine-tune their basic abdominal ultrasound skills. It is not aimed at practitioners with more advanced ultrasound experience. The days will be entirely devoted to scanning – there will be no lectures or course notes and participants will be expected to have attended an introductory/beginners CPD course (from any suitable CPD provider, not just the RVC) previously where the basics of ultrasound theory were discussed and techniques demonstrated or have some practice in performing abdominal ultrasound examinations.

Why do this course?

At the end of the course, you will have practiced the techniques needed to perform a basic abdominal ultrasound and ultrasound-guided aspiration and biopsy in dogs.
