Fri 10 – Sat 11 February 2023 – A 2-Day Practical Course



This two-day practical course was developed for practitioners with a good working knowledge in equine radiography/radiology who are keen to acquire helpful tips and tricks to further develop their skills in the field of equine musculoskeletal imaging.  The equine diagnostic imaging clinicians will discuss each anatomic region by comparing radiography with other complementary imaging modalities accessible to equine practitioners (up and foremost ultrasound, but also MRI & CT) through which additional information can be gained.  The panel of world-renowned specialists will share common technical pitfalls, practical tips and tricks, erroneous image interpretations and pearls of wisdom openly and honestly with the attendees through lectures, practical sessions and extensive case-discussions.  The use of comparative imaging as part of the prepurchase examination will also be discussed.

As part of the 9 hours of case-discussions and x-ray wetlabs on live horses attendees will get plenty of opportunities to further their radiography skills at the following stations:

  • X-ray Tips & Tricks – Foot, Pastern & Fetlock
  • Ultrasound of the Heel Bulb & Pastern on live horses
  • Specific Views of the MC/MT, Carpus & Tarsus on live horses
  • Ultrasound of the Suspensory Ligament Origin – FL vs. HL
  • Specific Views for Elbow, Shoulder & Cranial Ribs on live horses
  • X-ray Tips & Tricks – Stifle on live horses
  • Ultrasound of the Stifle Joint    
  • X-ray Tips & Tricks – Neck & Back on live horses
  • Foot, Pastern & Fetlock Comparative Imaging Case-Discussions
  • MC/MT, Carpus & Tarsus Comparative Imaging Case-Discussions
  • Elbow, Shoulder & Stifle Comparative Imaging Case-Discussions
  • Hip & Pelvis Comparative Imaging Case-Discussions                          

The course fee includes lunches at a restaurant, coffee / tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, extensive electronic course notes and a certificate of attendance. On the evening of the first day all attendees are invited to attend the wine & cheese reception. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures-Only ) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures, Case Discussions & Practical Sessions ).
