Practical Advanced Abdominal Ultrasound (2 Day Course) 28-29 Nov 2024

Central CPD

1 month ago

Date: Thursday 28th November, 2024 - Friday 29th November, 2024
Start time: 10:00 AM - 5:30 PM
Cost: £1395

This two-day highly practical course is aimed at vets in general practice who are already comfortable and competent with general abdominal ultrasound and would like to take their skills to the next level.

Delegates will learn how to perform a more thorough ultrasound examination of the abdomen, including the peritoneum, lymph nodes, adrenal glands and the pancreas and what changes may be seen in the diseased state.

There will be an introduction to the use of 2D and doppler and their use on the greater abdominal vessels, as well as indications and techniques for performing ultrasound-guided biopsies.

This course is limited to our lowest number of delegates per course to ensure that delegates will have plenty of scanning time and support.

To get the most from this advanced course delegates should already feel comfortable finding and examining the major abdominal organs with the ultrasound probe. This should include Liver, Gall Bladder, Spleen, Kidneys and Bladder. If more practice would be needed in these areas we would welcome you to our standard Practical Abdominal Ultrasound course where we cater for beginner to intermediate skills.

Topics to be covered include:

The full abdominal ultrasound, including peritoneum and lymph nodes
Further examination of the gastrointestinal tract
Locating the normal pancreas and the adrenals
Examining the great abdominal vessels on 2D and with Doppler
How and what to take as biopsies
