£237.50There will be a module in ultrasound physics and equipment operation (including colour flow Doppler, pulsed wave and continuous wave Doppler and their appropriate applications), before moving onto clinical case studies. There will be an opportunity to try a range of ultrasound equipment, to suit all budgets.
There will be a range of ultrasound scanners to try and you will receive a course booklet to take away, along with your VIS notepad and certificate of attendance. You will be taught how to operate an ultrasound scanner and transducer in order to perform a thorough abdominal examination on a bitch so that you can confidently identify pregnancy versus non-pregnancy.
With the exception of veterinary nurses, qualified obstetricians, or those otherwise professionally involved in veterinary care, all attendees of our level 2 course must have successfully completed our level 1 course (Introduction to Ultrasound). In order to get the most out of the day, it is also strongly recommended that you have at least 6 months' scanning experience between completing your level one and level two.
