Acquiring and interpreting radiographs can be daunting as a new graduate veterinary surgeon in small animal practice. Relevant experience is inevitably limited at this stage and cases rarely appear exactly like those in the textbooks.
This course is designed to help build your ability and confidence in recognising whether a radiograph is technically diagnostic, normal anatomical variations that you will encounter and common examples of pathology. Notes and recorded short lectures provide you with background knowledge, practical tips and examples. This is then complemented by a full day of practical sessions at the training centre where you will have the opportunity to review and discuss radiographic cases and to ask any questions or discuss specific challenges that you may have encountered in practice when performing radiography or interpreting radiographs.
Overall, this course aims to increase your confidence and minimise the self-doubt that you may experience when you need to make clinical decisions based on information provided by radiographs. Areas covered include radiology of the thorax, abdomen and appendicular skeleton, with cases provided in advance to review and then discuss on the practical day.
What you will learn :-
- How to identify lung patterns on a thoracic radiograph
- Normal and abnormal appearances of the pleural space and mediastinum
- Radiographic assessment of the acute abdomen – what to look for and the limitations of radiography
- Radiographic assessment of bone, including common orthopaedic conditions in both juvenile and mature animals
- Complete your learning and get your CPD Certificate for 15 Hours of CPD.
Course Tutor : Kate Bradley M.A., VetMB, Ph.D.(Bristol), DVR, DipECVDI
You’ll need to complete the online learning for this course before the practical session. This is so that you are familiar with the theory and the techniques that you’ll be carrying out in the practical sessions. We’ve found that delegates get much more from the practical sessions with this format, and you will also have more time for hands-on practice. We’ll email you access details for your online resources several weeks prior to your attendance session date.
