Infinita Academy invites you to participate in our most successful training course - Abdominal Ultrasound - basic level. Welcome to the 8th edition of the course and learn the ins and outs of abdominal ultrasound. Speaker will be Ranko Georgiev, DVM – chief doctor in the biggest veterinary clinic in Bulgaria and a leading specialist in cardiology and imaging diagnostics. 

The learning objectives of this education are:

         ·            How to recognize common artefacts and to avoid mistakes  

         ·            Standard scan planes and results interpretation

         ·            Principles of the standard ultrasound study, emphasis on the normal anatomy – unique isomorphic appearances of the abdominal organs

         ·            Common abdominal pathologies and their ultrasound appearances

We recommend this workshop for veterinarians or last year veterinary students with little or no experience in the field of diagnostic ultrasound. All major topics from the physics and principles of image formation to normal and abnormal abdominal organs appearances will be covered. All veterinarians who already have an ultrasound equipment in their practice, but do not feel confident using it, will benefit from the workshop too.

All participants will work in small groups with real patients, guided and monitored by the course instructors/table assistants. During the workshop everyone will scan at least 6 different animals – dogs and cats, with normal anatomy and with different pathologies.
