Principles of Small Animal Thoracic Radiology
This course is aimed at veterinarians who would like to improve their diagnosis skills in thoracic radiology.
We will build on basic radiographic principles such as border effacement and summation to understand the radiographic appearance of common thoracic diseases.
We will also explore common radiographic features of diseases involving the lung, mediastinum, pleural space and thoracic wall, applying them to a large number of examples.
By successfully completing this course, you will be able to:
Understand basic radiographic principles including border effacement, summation and distortion as they apply to thoracic radiographs
