IMV imaging Courses 2023

Abdo Plus! – Next steps to abdominal ultrasonography 

Course Overview: Throughout the course you will learn the normal and pathological appearance of all major organs along with adrenal glands, pancreas, major vessels and abdominal lymph nodes. You will learn the landmarks to guide you to the subtler structures and you will examine the anatomy of the abdominal vasculature with the use of doppler ultrasonography.

Topics Covered: This full day course is aimed at veterinary surgeons comfortable with basic abdominal ultrasonography and who want to take their skills a step further, tackling trickier things. With a mixture of lectures, demonstrations and practical hands-on sessions, you will soon get to grips with the entire tour of the abdomen.
