Small Animal Radiography – ‘It’s not all Black and White’ – Essential guide for small animal clinicians (Northern Ireland – 14/03/24)

IMV imaging Courses 2024

Small Animal Radiography

Course Overview:

This one day course is suitable for all Small Animal clinicians and will provide the theoretical and practical tools to give participants the confidence to examine and interpret straightforward and complex radiographic studies of cases which are commonly encountered.

It covers a systematic approach to the radiological interpretation of all organ systems in the thoracic and abdominal cavities while discussing several orthopaedic conditions also.  During the session we will focus on how to recognise normal and abnormal findings as well touching on the common indications for the use of contrast studies for the evaluation of the gastrointestinal and urinary tract. 

The course aims to help improve competency and confidence while assisting participants with discerning the information on radiographs that is most useful for case management.

Practical film reading session will be included throughout the day.

Course Content:

  • Understand standard radiographic views and the benefit of ancillary projections to assist with investigation
  • Apply knowledge to perform an interpretation of various imaging modalities:

Discuss the uses of radiography in the investigation of diseases

Understand how the different diagnostic imaging modalities can be used in their diagnosis

Discuss benefits and limitations of various aspects of Small Animal Radiology

  • Develop an effective and practical technique for reading radiographs of dogs and cats relating to the thorax, abdomen and musculoskeletal system
  • Recognise and describe abnormalities seen on diagnostic images and associate these with the underlying pathophysiology
  • Recognition of normal versus abnormal findings when evaluating radiographs, interpret findings and gain confidence with approaching basic and complex thoracic, abdominal and musculoskeletal radiograph
  • Clinical reasoning: extract the information on these radiographs which is useful for patient management and determining outcomes
  • Theoretical and Practical film reading sessions: Practice your radiograph reading skills using a large number of radiographic cases
