beginners_header-copy

As ultrasound systems become more affordable and easier to use, more veterinarians are using ultrasound in their clinics to improve diagnostic accuracy. But a lack of training is still considered a barrier to widespread adoption. To address this need, Clarius regularly engages ultrasound educators to present educational webinars and video tutorials that provide practical tips for common exams.

Dr. Camilla Edwards is one of our favourite instructors. Following are three videos she recently recorded on how to use ultrasound to scan the anatomy of companion animals. These videos are available on our website. You can also access them on the Clarius App, which our novice users find helpful to review prior to a patient exam.
