Fri 30 - Sat 31 October 2020 - A 2-Day Practical Course


COURSE DESCRIPTION

This two-day practical course was designed to provide veterinarians from mixed or equine practice with the theoretical and especially the practical skills to competently examine every single 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.  The first day will focus on ultrasonography of the frontlimb and on the second day the hindlimb will be covered. 

The following highly illustrated lectures (in English, no translation but with Dutch moderation) will be held in the mornings:   

  • How to get the most out of your ultrasound machine
  • Ultrasonographic anatomy and conditions of the Foot & Pastern
  • Fetlock & Digital Flexor Tendon Sheath
  • Carpus & Carpal Sheath
  • Elbow & Shoulder Joint
  • Tarsus, Tarsal Bursae & Sheath
  • Stifle Joint
  • Hip Joint & Pelvis

Between both afternoons7 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:

  • Heel Bulb & Pastern                                          
  • Fetlock & Digital Flexor Tendon Sheath              
  • Carpus & Carpal Sheath                                     
  • Tarsus, Tarsal Bursae & Sheath                                      
  • Stifle Joint
  • Hip & Shoulder Joint                                                      

The course fee includes lunches at a restaurant, coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, extensive course notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & 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.

This course is suitable for RCVS Modules:  B-EP.3;  C-E.6;  C-E.7;  C-E.15;  C-EP.17
