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 programme, 6 EBP points (Belgium) and 11 ATF points (Germany).
The course is given in English.

This online course in diagnostic imaging is set up in three modules, running during autumn 2021. Each module has their own topic and contains pre-recorded webinars (approx 2h/module), radiographs for interpretation and practical tasks and supplemented literature to work on between modules (approx 1-2h/module). Each module will finish with a live interactive two hour webinar session. During the duration of the course there will be a possibility to interact with the lecturer and between participants in a discussions forum. The pre-recorded course material is released two weeks prior to the live webinar session and can be completed in the participants own time but should be completed before the set dates for the live interactive webinars.
