Back to Basics: Diagnostic Ultrasound Workshop

All you need to know and understand to get you scanning with confidence.

Gain confidence with your ultrasound by understanding the principles and applying these in a practical hands-on one day workshop. Your expert tutor Jennifer Chau, will help you develop a greater understanding of diagnostic ultrasonology to allow you to conquer your fears and scan with confidence.

This course is designed to provide participants with basic principles of abdominal ultrasonography. Topics covered in this workshop will help participants acquire high‑quality images and interpret common diseases of the abdomen. Lectures will review basic physics of diagnostic ultrasound, principles of image formation, and principles of interpretation. Practical component will include scanning dogs in groups of no more than 3 people.

“Both tutors were down-to-earth and engaging, simplifying the approach to ultrasound. They pitched their lectures and practical sessions at exactly the right level.” - Rowena Leschner, Lincoln Vet Centre
