This 1 ½-day practical course is suitable for veterinarians from mixed and equine practice who are keen to develop and update their knowledge and especially their practical skills on medical ultrasound of the following anatomic region: Abdomen – GI & non-GI organs (percutaneously & transrectally), thorax, eye, jugular vein etc.. The use of ultrasound for pleural drainage, for collecting biopsy samples and when working up foals will also be discussed.

The panel of internationally renowned speakers/instructors has a wealth of experience with medical ultrasound and will share common diagnostic pitfalls, erroneous image interpretations, practical tips and pearls of wisdom open and honestly with the attendees.
In the mornings the following topics will be covered in well-illustrated lectures and case presentations (in English, with German moderation):

Gastrointestinal Ultrasound incl. fast localised exam in horses with colic

Non-Cardiac Thoracic Ultrasound (incl. Pleural Drainage)
Ocular Ultrasound
Ultrasound Exam of the Foal
Miscellaneous Medical Ultrasound – Thrombophlebitis, choke, transrectal ultrasound etc.
In the afternoons, 5 hours of practical sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and equine specimens and to ask questions in small groups (2 – 4 attendees / ultrasound machine), all under the supervision of specialists. The following practical sessions will be covered during the course:

Fast localised abdominal ultrasound in horses with colic
Ocular Ultrasound
