Diagnostic Imaging for the Emergency Patient


Welcome to an online course on Diagnostic Imaging of the Emergency Patient! 

This online course is aimed at veterinarians working with emergency patients who want to develop or refresh their knowledge in abdominal- and thoracic emergency radiographs and ultrasound.

The main focus is on interpretation of the acute thoracic and abdominal pathologies. Pros and cons with the different image modalities, practical tips for interpretation and how to avoid pitfalls. The major part will cover radiographic emergencies, mixed with acute abdominal- and thoracic ultrasound and emergency echocardiography (point of care ultrasound). 

The aim is to develop a structured approach to correctly and confidently diagnose emergency conditions in order to provide the best possible care for the patient.

The course is accredited for the Swedish and Norwegian Specialist in diseases in dogs and cats programmes.  

The course is given in English.
