Ultrasonography has become a crucially important diagnostic imaging modality in Equine Orthopedics and most Equine Practitioners nowadays have access to the necessary equipment. A growing number of equine orthopedic specialists have furthermore extended the use of ultrasonography creatively to assist with injection techniques and to facilitate minimally invasive surgery. This practical course has been developed to provide equine and mixed animal practitioners who have experience with ultrasonography, with the theoretical knowledge and the practical skills of performing ultrasound-guided orthopedic injections and ultrasound-assisted surgical techniques, covering all regions of the musculoskeletal apparatus of the horse. Whole horses will be used to recreate a scenario as it might be encountered in live horses. A review of conventional and biologic treatment modalities for orthopedic conditions will round the course up.

To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have first worked through the corresponding online Lecture Series ‘Ultrasound-Guided Orthopaedic Injection Techniques & Therapies:'

If you have already purchased the Lecture Series independently of the On-Location Portion, please contact the office on offi[email protected] for a voucher code to reduce the price accordingly.
