This one-day workshop will provide practical lectures on how to obtain diagnostic echo images. Attendees will then have the opportunity to practice obtaining these images in the afternoon on live dogs with hands-on scanning. They will then be able to take this skill, along with a new understanding of interpretation, back to general practice.
- Learn how to set up your ultrasound machine for echocardiography
- Learn how to reliably acquire a good echo image of the heart and the basic echo views
- Learn how to interpret your echo studies
