COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course has been designed to equip the equine practitioners with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to make the most of their abilities and ultrasound machine, in the diagnosis and treatment of various equine musculoskeletal conditions affecting the mid and distal frontlimb and hindlimb, including the stifle joint. This course is suitable for all vets aiming to improve their knowledge and skills in this area, as the practical sessions will be adapted to the attendee’s skill level.

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 speakers will be sharing invaluable tips/tricks and pearls of wisdom with the attendees during the 7 hours of practical sessions in small groups (2 – 4 vets per ultrasound machine) on live horses.  Each attendee will be able to hone his/her practical skills at the following practical stations:  Machine set-up, foot & pastern, digital flexor tendon sheath, fetlock region, suspensory ligament, flexor tendons & check ligaments, tarsus & tarsal sheath and the 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). 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 due to the highly practical nature of this course.

Very informative.  Loved having the instructors demonstrate and then assist us.  Great ratio of attendees/ultrasound machines/instructors.  Great quality machines too.
