About This Course
This ultrasound course is designed for practitioners comfortable with routine ultrasound examinations and are currently performing 1 to 2 ultrasounds per week. Participants will be provided reading material that should be reviewed prior to the course to ensure maximal time for instruction. The student to instructor ratio will be 2:1 during hands-on laboratory and then lectures focusing on advanced topics of disease presentation, case based examples, Doppler imaging and specific time spent on difficult lesions such as adrenal, pancreatic and intestinal diseases. All laboratories will use live dogs and cats that have been sedated with protocols approved by an Animal Care and Use committee. The purpose of this 3-day laboratory and lecture series is to provide in-depth knowledge and adequate time to expand the sonographers skill set. The goal of this course is not to provide you the ability to make comprehensive diagnoses of disease, but rather to expand your knowledge of disease appearances while ensuring that you are conducting a complete and thorough examination that can be interpreted by either yourself or board-certified specialists.
Coffee and snacks are provided throughout the day.
Lunch provided on full-day courses.
Dinners to go – We’ve found that at the end of a long course day participants are looking forward to returning to their hotel to relax. We realize that our preferred lodging partner doesn’t have a restaurant on site or located close to the hotel. To help make things easier for you we will provide a hot meal, at the end of each full course day, with to go containers so you can bring it back to the hotel with you. On the last day of the course we will provide something a little easier to transport for those heading to the airport. This will not apply to those courses that end midafternoon – only those that end at noon or 5:00PM.
