Practical Ultrasound - Intensive Short Course

Practical Ultrasound - Intensive Short Course

Do you know what you are seeing when you're scanning? Can you follow blood vessels as a road map to the abdomen? Can you find the adrenal glands and pancreas? Do you have enough time to practise your scanning on normal dogs as well as clinical patients?

If you are time poor but need an intensive boost to help you gain more confidence with your imaging, here’s your chance to make it happen!

Let Dr Karon Hoffmann work with you in an intensive, immersive practical 4-day course on Diagnostic Ultrasound, where you will spend a dedicated amount of time learning how to perform scans from the right foundations and improve your technique under the expert guidance of these instructors.

Karon is known Australia-wide as the ‘go to’ person for ultrasound as well as being a European Boarded Specialist in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging. She will instruct and give you personal and immediate feedback on your scanning, and teach you tips and tricks that will make a huge difference when you get back to your practice.

What’s even better is that Karon wants to help you develop that sense of achievement you’ll get when you climb to that next level of skill. Those confounding cases won’t seem so scary and you’ll be excited at the prospect of being able to perform ultrasound on all your cases. Better still, you’ll discover that you want to learn more, practise more and get even better as your confidence builds.
