About the Course:
When the ultrasound beam interacts with tissue it can react in a variety of ways. These interactions can also cause artifacts. These artifacts can either be beneficial or detrimental to the image. Recognizing and appreciating these interactions will be discussed in the lecture as well as learning how to recognize artifacts.
All ultrasound machines possess the same knobology and it is important to learn these in order to optimize the quality of your image. It is also important to learn the terminology used in ultrasound.
How to scan all organs within the abdomen will be discussed and normal vs abnormal findings will be observed via a slide show. Some abdominal appearances are characteristic of certain diseases and these also will be observed and discussed.
Case studies will be presented of common ultrasound findings that may be seen in the small animal veterinary practice.
