This seminar series and combined wet lab are designed for veterinarians who want to further their training in small animal ultrasound. Lectures will briefly review ultrasound physics and artifacts, and assist the participants in fine-tuning the image. Normal intra-abdominal structure will be reviewed and abnormal intra-abdominal pathology will be emphasized. Wet lab participants will gain experience in completing a routine small abdominal ultrasound examination, knowledge of normal sonographic anatomy and appearance of commonly identified pathologies. Some of the more challenging intra-abdominal structures to image will be emphasized. Interaction between the radiologist and the participants will be encouraged and the attendees will have an opportunity to address personal areas of concern in their understanding of abdominal ultrasound scanning techniques.
