Fri 22 - Sat 23 February 2019 - A 2-Day Practical Course


COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course provides equine practitioners with the knowledge and especially the practical skills to competently and confidently scan the mid-distal front- and hindlimb incl. the stifle joint of the horse.  Over the two days the attendees will spend 7 hours scanning the following anatomical regions in small groups (2 – 4 vets per ultrasound machine) on live horses:  Pastern, fetlock, digital flexor tendon sheath, flexor tendons, suspensory ligament, tarsus (incl. sheaths) & stifle.

The course will run over two days, with a focus on highly illustrated lectures which will be systematically approached:

  • How to get the most out of your ultrasound machine
  • Ultrasonographic Anatomy and Conditions of the Foot & Pastern
  • Digital Flexor Tendon Sheath & Annular Ligament
  • Fetlock Joint Region
  • Flexor Tendons & Check Ligaments
  • Suspensory Ligament – Frontlimb vs. Hindlimb
  • Carpus & Carpal Sheath                
  • Tarsus, Tarsal Bursae & Sheath                 
  • Stifle Joint Region

The course fee includes hot lunches, coffee/tea breaks, the wine & cheese reception, 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).   Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available due to the highly practical nature of this course.
