Welcome to an online course on CT interpretation in small animal practice!
This online course is aimed at veterinarians performing or referring patients for CT examinations who want to develop skills in the best use of the CT and how to interpret the images.
The aim is to increase Your image quality and develop Your image interpretation skills to give a structured diagnostic approach to common skeletal-, neurological-, vascular-, abdominal- and thoracic changes seen in dogs and cats. During this course you will also learn how to use a common DICOM viewer.
The course is done in collaboration with Vet Imaging Academy.
The course is given in English.

After the course the participants will:
- have knowledge of basic CT-physics and how to diminish CT-artifacts
- be able to choose the correct imaging modality for the clinical question
- know how to perform optimal CT-examinations
- have a structured and efficient approach to interpret common CT pathologies
- understand and describe different pathological changes and grade the most likely diagnosis
- be able to write a structured imaging report
- have knowledge of current literature and websites
This online course in diagnostic imaging and CT is set up in four modules running during springtime 2021. The course will start with a introduction webinar and be followed by four modules. Each module has their own topic and contains pre-recorded webinars, multiple choice questions (MCQ) and you are expected to interpret given CT-images in-between modules (estimated time for homework approximately 1-2h/module). Modules 2 - 4 will finish with live interactive webinar sessions.
During the duration of the course there will be a possibility to interact with the lecturer and the participants. The course material for each module is released two weeks prior to the live session and can be accessed in your own time but should be completed well before the set dates for the live interactive webinars.
