Veterinary Ultrasound Bootcamps are just what you need to get the most out of your CME's. Our Bootcamps are fast paced, hands-on and extremely effective.  Programs are designed to cater to all skill levels. This six day course is broken down into two parts, held in three day sessions:

Part 1: Introduction to Companion Animal Abdominal Ultrasound

In this course participants will learn how to perform a full abdominal ultrasound including liver, spleen, urogenital system, gastrointestinal tract, adrenal glands and lymph nodes. Participants will also be given the guiding principles and techniques for ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration and biopsies and an opportunity to practice these techniques in the lab using a phantom. The objectives of the course are:

  • To provide the participants with a foundation in how to perform a complete ultrasound examination and how to appropriately document the study for submission to a radiologist.
  • Understand the indications for and limitations of abdominal ultrasonography
  • Be able to perform ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration and biopsy
  • Be able to perform and interpret the AFAST/TFAST examinations for emergency situations

The course is designed for both the beginner and those who may have scanned before but would like a refresher.

NOTE: Day 3 is dedicated to AFAST/TFAST and can be taken on its own as a one day course for that are just interested in this area of ultrasound or need a refresher/review on emergency scan/assessment exams. Please call or email for more information.
