The 7 hours of practical sessions in small groups (2 - 4 vets per ultrasound machine) will provide the attendees with the opportunity to ask questions and to put their existing and newly acquired knowledge into practice, on both live horses and cadavers. The following anatomical regions will be covered during the practical sessions, supervised by the specialists: Shoulder joint & bicipital bursa, stifle joint region, poll & neck, withers & back, percutaneous ultrasound of hip & pelvis, and transrectal ultrasound of the lumbosacroiliac region & pelvis.
