Practical Small Animal Ultrasound: Kidney and Urinary Bladder Point-of-Care Scanning Techniques
RACE-Approved: 1 CE/CPD Credit
Join Veterinary ultrasound educator Dr. Camilla Edwards, DVM, CertAVP, MRCVS, as she teaches how to perform point-of-care ultrasound exams for the canine kidneys and bladder.
In this 1-hour webinar, you’ll discover how easy and affordable it is to add wireless ultrasound to your veterinary clinic or animal hospital. We’ll explore:
- The value of ultrasound to improve patient care on the first visit
- Pro tips, tricks, and landmarks helpful in locating the bladder and kidneys
- The ultrasound appearance of normal anatomical structures
- Image interpretation – how to recognise what urinary tract pathology looks like
Bladder and kidney diseases are very amenable to the use of ultrasound imaging for investigation. In this webinar, you’ll learn rapid, low impact, point-of-care first line screening tests for real-time answers to important clinical questions so you can confidently treat your furry patients faster.
Dr. Camilla Edwards believes in teaching ultrasound with a hands-on approach. In this dynamic session she will teach you how to perform common ultrasound exams to instantly see the pathology troubling your small animal patients.
Using video footage captured with Pippi, her Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Dr. Edwards will share step-by-step instructions to hone your POCUS skills. You’ll learn how to perform kidney and bladder exams using the latest advancements in handheld wireless ultrasound.
Dr. Edwards will share clinical imaging – comparing healthy to abnormal anatomy – so you can hone your ultrasound interpretation skills to more quickly and accurately diagnose pathologies in the bladder and kidneys. You’ll learn how to evaluate and measure the severity of hydronephrosis, to rule out masses and stones, and to monitor progress during treatment.
In veterinary medicine, ultrasound is the most commonly used imaging tool for assessing urinary tract disorders in small animals, because it’s inexpensive, fast, easy to perform, and provides excellent contrast resolution. In this webinar, Dr. Edwards will offer practical tips and protocols to improve your ultrasound techniques to get a real-time, accurate diagnosis for effective first-visit treatment plans to get your patients back in action faster.
Advances in technology have made wireless more affordable and accessible than ever before. You’re no longer required to learn complex systems with knobs and buttons to capture high quality imaging. Now, with the miniaturization of high definition ultrasound and advances in artificial intelligence, learning and using handheld ultrasound imaging is fast, affordable, and easy.
