Ultrasound is an interactive and extremely useful diagnostic imaging modality in clinical practice.
It is highly operator dependent, so some experience and knowledge are the key to driving the ultrasound probe with more confidence and being able to interpret the findings.
This course is designed to give you the essential knowledge on how to optimize image quality, how to find abdominal structures such as the pancreas and adrenal gland, and how to approach some common challenges faced in clinical practice such as free abdominal fluid, nodular disease and ileus. A case-based approach will be used to explore the common diseases associated with these problems and how to diagnose them.
Gives you the information you need to complement your scanning ability.

By successfully completing this course, you will be able to:
- Better understand the essential operator settings that help to optimise image quality (How to improve a blurry or dark image? What is the cause of artefacts and when can they be useful?)
- Develop an approach to scanning abdominal structures
- Develop a problem orientated approach to scanning the abdomen and solve common problems faced in clinical practice (e.g. Free fluid? Mass?)
- Be able to recognise the common diseases associated with these problems and learn how to diagnose them
- Optimising image quality in ultrasound
- Approach to scanning the abdomen
- Ultrasonographic features of normal organs
- Common problems and approach to diagnosis

Who should enrol?
This course is suitable for vets and students who are in the early stages of learning to use ultrasound as an imaging modality. We also welcome vets that have already been using their ultrasound machine to check specific areas such as bladders and free fluid but want to develop their approach to scanning the canine abdomen as a whole. This online course provides a summarised theoretical foundation to boost the knowledge that is needed behind ultrasound imaging.
