COURSE DESCRIPTION

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 and tendon sheath 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. 

To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have first worked through the  corresponding online Lecture Series ‘Equine Joint Ultrasound & Joint Therapies’:

  • If you have already purchased the Lecture Series independently of the On-Location Portion, please contact the office on office@vetpd.com for a voucher code to reduce the price accordingly.

As part of the online Lecture Series the following topics will be covered in highly illustrated lectures and case presentations: 

Speaker Topic Duration (min)
Roger Smith How to get the most out of your ultrasound machine 55  
Roger Smith Ultrasound of the Coffin & Pastern Joints 55
Roger Smith Ultrasound of the Elbow & Shoulder Joint 55

Roger Smith What’s the latest on Regenerative Therapies? 60
Myra Barrett Ultrasound of the Tarsus, Tarsal Bursae & Tarsal Sheath 60
Myra Barrett Ultrasound of the Hip Joint & Pelvis 55

Day 1 starts at 3:00PM 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:

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

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 worked through the Lecture Series (included in the price).   Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available due to the highly practical nature of this course.
