During Session 3 you will learn how to obtain basic echocardiographic images with tips on how to successfully identify left atrial enlargement and left ventricular thickening. The session will also cover conditions of the pericardial and pleural spaces and an initial approach to lung ultrasonography.

What you’ll learn:

  • How to take good echocardiographic views – position and cardiac “knobology”
  • Long axis and short axis views
  • How to successfully identify left atrial enlargement
  • How to successfully identify left ventricular thickening
  • Pericardial disease in the cat
  • How to use the ultrasound for evaluation of the pleural space
  • Top tips for basic lung ultrasonography
