10 Ways Ultrasound Helped My Equine Veterinary Practice
Global equine sports medicine and rehabilitation expert Dr. Christopher Elliott will share equine ultrasound techniques that will set you apart from the crowd with better diagnostics.
In this 1-hour webinar, you’ll learn how easy and affordable it is to add handheld ultrasound to your veterinary practice. Christopher will explain:
- How he started a new equine vet practice in 4 weeks during the pandemic
- 10 advantages of handheld ultrasound to deliver better veterinary care
- Scanning techniques for the superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT)

A Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, Dr. Christopher Elliott will share ultrasound techniques to give your veterinary practice a lasting competitive advantage with better patient care that will keep them loyal and coming back.
Dr. Elliott had big plans at the start of 2020 to work in Japan for the organizing committee of the Olympic Games from May to September. COVID-19 thwarted those plans and brought him home to Australia. Within just four weeks, he started his own race track practice in the middle of a global financial downturn and global pandemic.
How did he set himself apart? Knowing that an ultrasound system was essential for his practice, Dr. Elliott purchased an affordable high-definition handheld ultrasound.
Whether you’re new to ultrasound, curious about the advantages of wireless scanners or simply need to brush up on your scanning techniques, join Dr. Elliott as he shares clinical images he captured with handheld ultrasound to diagnose lesions of the superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT). He’ll share how a definitive diagnosis supported recommendations for a rehabilitation program, with repeated ultrasound examinations to monitor and document progress.
Don’t miss it! On Sunday December 6th, join Dr. Elliot as he shares how to prepare for an ultrasound exam, palpation and scanning techniques, how to take accurate measurements, and tips for generating quality reports.
