IMV imaging Courses 2023

New for 2023!

Abdo-Cardabra! Small Animal Basic Ultrasound

Course Overview: The day will be informal and relaxed with maximum time for hands-on learning. Arrive for tea and coffee from 8.30am, ready to begin the lectures at 9am. We will aim to finish by 5.30pm. Places are limited to a maximum of 10 delegates so book your place early to avoid disappointment. Course notes will be provided.

Topics Covered: This full day course is aimed at vets with minimal experience of diagnostic ultrasound and those who feel that they could get much more from their ultrasound machine for
both basic abdominal ultrasonography and basic echocardiography. Via a blend of lectures, demonstrations, and practical hands-on sessions you will gain the fundamental knowledge to improve your skills or get started if you don’t know where to begin.

Key learning objectives

  • Basic ultrasound physics – understand how an image is formed and when things are not as they appear
  • Get familiar with the machine – learn the core controls and how to get the best image
  • Indications – when to use ultrasound examinations – when is it a useful diagnostic tool?
  • A logical approach to the main organs of the abdomen and approach to the heart – carrying out an examination that you can continue to build on
  • What normal looks like (Liver, gall bladder, spleen GI Tract, kidneys, urogenital tracts and major vessels)
  • Learn the normal appearance of the cardiac anatomy
  • Normal right sided echocardiographic 2D views and their interpretation
  • Put it into practice – get stuck in!
