This seminar series and combined wet lab will introduce the veterinarian to entry level abdominal ultrasound imaging in the small animal practice. The seminar consists of four, 50-minute lectures. The basic physics, an overview of instrumentation, common artifacts, and scanning techniques will be reviewed as well as normal anatomy and appearance of the abdominal organs. Wet lab participants will be introduced to basic ultrasound image manipulation (knobology), physics and artifacts of abdominal ultrasound, learn scanning techniques, and how to identify normal abdominal structures through scanning of live animals. Interaction between the radiologist and the participants will be encouraged.
