Practical Medical, Orthopaedic & Stifle Ultrasound
University of Liverpool
Date: Wednesday 22nd May, 2024 - Friday 24th May, 2024
Start time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Duration: 3 hour(s)
Day One is an introduction to diagnostic ultrasound in equine medical cases. The day starts with a lecture on how to get the most out of your ultrasound machine and how to avoid common pitfalls. A series of interactive lectures follow, covering abdominal, thoracic and ocular ultrasonography with the group then dividing into small group sessions for some hands-on scanning under supervision to put these skills into practice.
There will be ample opportunity to practice what you have learnt on a variety of horses with a range of scanners.
Apply an understanding of the ultrasound machine set-up in order to maximise functionality and therefore optimise image acquisition
Demonstrate the practical skills required to acquire accurate ultrasound images of diagnostic quality, and demonstrate a systematic approach to ultrasonography of the equine abdomen, thorax and eye.
Day Two is an introduction to diagnostic ultrasound in orthopaedic disease. A series of lectures in the morning cover common diseases of the distal limb, including superficial flexor tendonitis, suspensory and AL-DDFT desmitis, and the ultrasound anatomy of the lower limb, carpal sheath and tarsal region. The afternoon is spent working in small groups, rotating through hands-on practical scanning of the forelimb and hind limb with ample time to work on skills taught in the lectures, leaving you both confident and competent in orthopaedic ultrasound of the equine patient.
Demonstrate a logical approach to diagnosis and treatment of common diseases of the equine distal limb
Demonstrate the practical skills required to acquire accurate ultrasound images of diagnostic quality of the equine distal limb.
Day Three - Stifle ultrasound guided injection techniques
