This practical course was designed to provide veterinarians from mixed or equine practice with the theoretical and especially the practical skills to competently examine every joint of the equine front- and hindlimb ultrasonographically. A panel of international experts who have dedicated a significant proportion of their careers to musculoskeletal ultrasonography are involved with this course. In the morning of the second day, the focus will be on ultrasonography of the frontlimb and in the afternoon on the hindlimb.
To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have first taken part in the corresponding online Lecture Series ‘Equine Joint Ultrasound & Joint Therapies’:
The online Lecture Series addresses the following hot topics via well-illustrated, case-discussions providing a platform for the panel of speakers to share pitfalls, erroneous clinical conclusions and useful tips and tricks:
Day 1 starts at 15:00h with 3 hours of interactive Case-Discussions, Q&A which will give attendees the unique opportunity to apply what they have learned during Lecture Series in discussion with the world-renowned specialists. This will then be followed by the obligatory Wine & Cheese Reception allowing for attendees to socialise with colleagues and the speakers/instructors.
On the second day, 7 hours of small group sessions (2 – 4 attendees / ultrasound machine) will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses under the supervision of the specialists. There will furthermore be plenty of time for discussions and each attendee will rotate through the following practical stations:
The course fee includes, coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, lunch and a certificate of attendance. To participate in the On-Location Case-Discussions & Practical Sessions, attendees are required to have first taken part in the Lecture Series (purchased as an ‘Extra’ when registering for the On-Location Case-Discussions & Practical Sessions). Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available due to the highly practical nature of this course.
