Radiology refresher for the companion animal practitioner

Radiography comprises the majority of diagnostic medical images generated in veterinary practice and is often used on a daily basis in most companion animal practices. Taking high quality diagnostic films and good interpretation skills is critical when making a diagnosis from a radiograph.

About this course  

The course will cover the whole spectrum of thoracic, abdominal and musculoskeletal conditions that are commonly seen on a day-to-day basis in practice. Some more unusual interesting conditions will also be assessed giving you greater confidence to make a diagnosis from your films.

The two day workshop will include talks and demonstrations as well as hands on film reading of canine and feline conditions and the ability to enhance your radiographic images by improving your radiology skills.

Feel more confident interpreting challenging cases. By improving your radiographic and radiological techniques you will make more accurate diagnosis, improve patient outcome and reduce the number of repeat shots which is time consuming and frustrating.

There will be access to radiographic images online to evaluate prior to the workshop which will provide a source of discussion at the course.


Format

Two-day workshop comprises of talks, demonstrations and hands on film reading.


Suitable for

Companion animal veterinarians.


Learning outcomes

  • Improved radiography skills resulting in maximum diagnostic ability from radiographic studies.
  • Improved ability to recognise patterns of disease in small animal radiology.
  • More confidence to make a radiological diagnosis from images.
  • Increased  skills to differentiate artefacts from pathology on radiographs.
  • Increased understanding of radiographic limitations and opportunities.
  • Improved outcomes for the patient, client and vet staff.
  • Provide better medicine with a more accurate imaging diagnosis.
  • Potentially save the client money by reducing the need for advanced diagnostics if the diagnosis can be recognised radiographically.
