Date: Nov 8-9, 2019

Venue: Al Wasl Veterinary Clinic

Organized By: Medical Plus & German Standard Group

Summary & Objective of the course

  • Fundamentals of Ultrasound

  • AFAST – Abdominal Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma

  • TFT – Thoracic Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma

  • Practicals on image acquisition and optimization

Ultrasound is a powerful and often under-utilized tool. In this workshop we start with the fundamentals of ultrasound, how to acquire an image, then we go into AFAST which is a very information scanning process that lays the foundation for full abdominal scanning. We also cover TFAST which is a very useful adjunct to thoracic radiographs for the assessment of lung disease. The theory session is then followed with a practical session to help you get accustomed to image acquisition and optimization and actually scanning.
