Canine Abdominal Ultrasound
Ultrasound is an interactive and extremely useful diagnostic imaging modality in clinical practice.
It is highly operator dependent, so some experience and knowledge is 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.
By successfully completing this course, you will:
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 and common diseases.
Common problems and approach to diagnosis
This course includes:
Written notes, photographs, videos and case studies
Self-assessed multiple choice quizzes to test your knowledge and understanding
A discussion forum for conversation, debate and information exchange with your peers and tutors
An electronic certificate available for download upon successful completion of the course
The estimated time to complete this course is 10 hours and it will be open for 4 weeks.
