Practical Small Animal Ultrasound: How to scan the Pancreas and the Adrenals
RACE-Approved: 1 CE/CPD Credit
Join ultrasonography educator Dr. Camilla Edwards, DVM, CertAVP, MRCVS as she teaches ultrasound scanning techniques for the pancreas and adrenal glands.
In this 1-hour webinar, discover how easy and affordable it is to add wireless ultrasound to your veterinary clinic or animal hospital. Dr. Edwards explores:
- Imaging landmarks for identifying and scanning the adrenal glands
- Using POCUS best practices to systematically examine the pancreas
- Recognizing and diagnosing pathology in the pancreas and adrenals
- Honing interpretation, taking measurements and building quality reports
With improvements in veterinary ultrasound in recent years, the pancreas and adrenal glands are now readily visible in cats and dogs. In this webinar, learn rapid, low impact, POCUS techniques to confidently diagnose pathology common to these anatomical structures.
In this very practical session, ultrasonography educator Dr. Camilla Edwards teaches you how to examine the pancreas and the adrenal glands using the latest advancements in handheld wireless ultrasound.
Dr. Edwards shares clinical imaging, demonstrating the essential landmarks and showing you plenty of normal images. She also shares ultrasound imaging with pathology so you can hone your ultrasound interpretation skills to more quickly and accurately diagnose your sick patients.
Help boost your confidence in routinely identifying the adrenal glands and recognizing the most commonly observed abnormality, namely enlargement in the form of hyperplasia, nodules and masses. You’ll learn to evaluate and measure the adrenal glands with great accuracy.
Using high-definition wireless ultrasound, Dr. Edwards also shares techniques for visualizing the pancreas, a typically difficult structure to identify. You’ll learn to scan the right lobe, left lobe and the body of the pancreas. By reviewing pathology imaging, you’ll gain greater understanding of what abnormalities to look for with the pancreas, including pancreatitis, noninflammatory pancreatic edema and pancreatic neoplasia.
Advances in technology have made ultrasound more affordable and easier to use than ever before. Hone your ultrasound scanning skills by watching this webinar to help you provide the best care for your furry patients and to impress their owners. Don’t miss it!
