About the Event

Ultrasound for Veterinary Nurses

This comprehensive Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course is designed for veterinary nurses seeking to enhance their skills in ultrasound diagnostics. The program covers essential aspects of veterinary ultrasound, including machine setup, probe selection, patient considerations, ultrasound physics, identification of organs, and recognition of artefacts.

  1. Machine Setup:Understanding and optimising ultrasound machine settings for various diagnostic purposes. Hands-on practice in configuring the ultrasound equipment for different species and imaging goals. Troubleshooting common technical issues to ensure efficient machine operation. 
  2. Probe Selection:In-depth exploration of ultrasound probes and their applications in veterinary medicine. Strategies for choosing the most appropriate probe for specific anatomical regions and diagnostic objectives. 
  3. Patient Considerations:Patient preparation protocols, including positioning and handling, to optimise ultrasound image quality. Techniques for managing anxious patients during the ultrasound procedure. Recognising and addressing factors that may affect ultrasound results, such as patient size and condition. 
  4. Ultrasound Physics:A comprehensive overview of the underlying physics principles governing ultrasound imaging. Understanding how ultrasound waves interact with tissues and generate diagnostic images. Exploring Doppler imaging and its applications in assessing blood flow. 
  5. Artefacts:Identification and interpretation of common ultrasound artefacts. Strategies for minimizing artefacts and optimizing image clarity. Problem-solving scenarios to enhance participants' ability to recognize and address artefacts in real-world situations. 
  6. Organ Identification:Systematic approach to identifying and imaging various organs. Practical sessions focused on enhancing participants' proficiency in recognising normal and abnormal organ structures. Case studies and interactive discussions to reinforce organ identification skills in diverse clinical scenarios. 

By the end of this CPD course, veterinary nurses will have acquired advanced knowledge and practical skills in veterinary ultrasound, empowering them to contribute significantly to the diagnostic capabilities of their veterinary practices. This course is designed to provide a solid foundation for ongoing professional development in the rapidly evolving field of veterinary diagnostics.
