Periodontal and dental diseases are arguably the most common issues seen in small animal practice, yet many vets feel intimidated or inadequate when faced with a complicated case that may require more than a scale and polish.
This comprehensive course will take your understanding of skeletal imaging and pathology to a new level. Learn to refine the quality of your digital images and enhance your interpretation of radiographs of the appendicular and axial skeleton and joints.
Dogs, cats and exotics are all discussed with tutor -written notes, case studies, self-assessed quizzes and individual feedback enhancing the application of your learning. Make the most of the online forum to ask questions and share cases. Get to know your tutor and colleagues at the one-day face to face workshop. As well as conventional radiography, ultrasound, CT and MRI will be introduced where appropriate.
Digital Radiography - optimising your ability to use digital radiographs in practice.
Digital radiographs are now widespread in veterinary practice - but the transition to digital does not always mean better image quality. This short course will help you understand what your digital system is and will review simple radiographic principles to improve your image quality. You will learn about how to share your digital images for a second opinion and develop a better understanding of how to get the sharpest lung detail, the best abdominal contrast and crispest trabecular bone detail.
Develop an ordered and logical approach to imaging and evaluation of the abdomen. This course focuses on a radiographic approach to abdominal imaging, but will be supplemented with discussion of other imaging modalities. The usefulness of ultrasonography will be explored for imaging abdominal viscera and, where relevant, the application of other diagnostic tools such as computer tomography (CT) will be discussed and demonstrated.
Are you over-referring? Complete this course to improve your confidence in dealing with those tricky cases that are often referred to a specialist.
Neurological cases are probably some of the scariest to deal with and quickest to get referred. This course aims to demystify the process of localisation and help you gain the confidence to work up these often tricky cases.
Starting with the basics of clinical neurology and an introduction to neuroanatomical localization, the aim is for you to develop a logical step-wise approach to neurological presentations.
