Ultrasonography for Vet Nurses (Online Course + Practical Session with Jack Pye)

Course Overview: 

This combined course aims to guide you through all the different aspects of ultrasound as it is used in companion animal practice. Aimed at both absolute beginners and those with ultrasound skills already in development, we will guide you through everything you need to know to become competent at ultrasonography. From patient preparation and using your own machine to how ultrasound is applied to our patients, we will build your confidence and get you confidently performing point-of-care ultrasound examinations of the thorax and abdomen. The ultrasonographic anatomy of the thorax and abdomen will be discussed, along with ultrasound artefacts and machine aftercare. All of this is presented in an interactive, eLearning format full of quizzes, animations and videos.

Following completion of the online theory course, the all-day practical training will allow you

to put the theory into practice on real dogs, under the guidance and tuition of the IMV imaging Clinical Team and special guest, Jack Pye!

On this 100% practical day, you will put all the techniques from the theory course into practice in a series of demos and practical sessions in a relaxed, friendly and informal environment.

Topics Covered:

  • Machine setup and patient preparation  
  • How the ultrasound artefacts appear when scanning, and how they can be useful to you
