Basic Echocardiography Workshop

This small group 1-day workshop is designed to give you a basic understanding of small animal (dog & cat) echocardiography.

 

Major topics will include ultrasound principles, normal cardiac anatomy and physiology. Also included will be techniques for achieving quality 2D and M-mode images and results, case presentations of important diseases and emergency cases, as well as plenty of opportunity for hands-on scanning of normal dogs. Individual coaching of how to obtain 2D and M-mode echocardiographic views and measurements (taught in the lectures) will be the main focus.

Requirements: No prior experience or knowledge is required to participate in this workshop. 

Learning outcomes

By successfully completing this course, you will:

  • Develop a basic comprehension of ultrasound principles as they apply to small animal echocardiography, including image formation, transducer manipulation, and interpretation of ultrasound signals.
  • Demonstrate the ability to obtain high-quality 2D and M-mode echocardiographic images of the canine and feline heart.
  • Acquire the knowledge necessary to operate echocardiographic equipment effectively and understand the fundamental principles underlying image acquisition.

What is a workshop?

Highly practical - develop the confidence to implement your new skills on your return to work.

Practical workshops are an ideal way to build confidence and competence in your skills, as you put theory into practice.

Ideally balanced combination of theoretical and hands-on education, our workshops allow participants to obtain the most benefit possible through practical application of the skills being taught. Small group teaching with a high tutor to participant ratio will ensure that you benefit from individual attention from your highly regarded and experienced tutor/s. Nothing beats on-the-spot feedback as you learn a new procedure.

Who should enrol?

This course is suitable for qualified veterinarians.
