Ultrasonography has become a crucially important diagnostic imaging modality in Equine Orthopaedics and a growing number of equine orthopaedic specialists have extended the use of ultrasonography creatively to assist with injection techniques and to facilitate minimally invasive surgery. This course has been developed for equine practitioners to enhance their knowledge and practical skills of performing ultrasound-guided orthopaedic injections and ultrasound-assisted surgical techniques. Between both afternoons, 7 hours of practical sessions will provide the opportunity to train the different injection techniques on horses and equine specimens in true small-groups (2 – 4 vets per ultrasound machine).
In the mornings the following topics will be covered in highly illustrated lectures and case presentations (in English, Danish moderation):
Open and frank discussions are encouraged during the course and the speakers will share their personal experiences with attendees, be it successes or failures.
Between both afternoons, 7 hours of practical sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to train the different injection techniques on whole horses and specimens and to get tips and tricks in small groups (2 – 4 attendees per ultrasound machine), under the supervision of the specialists. Each attendee will rotate through the following practical stations:
The course fee includes lunches, coffee/tea breaks, extensive electronic 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). On the evening of the first day all attendees are invited to attend the wine & cheese reception. Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available.
This course is suitable for RCVS Modules: B-EP.3; C-E.4; C-E.5; C-E.6; C-E.7; C-E.15; C-E.17
