In this webinar, Dr Laura Quiney BVSc MRCVS will provide a practical guide for obtaining high quality standard views of the carpus. The webinar will also cover additional views and what information they may give us, whilst discussing alternative ways to maximize image quality.
This webinar will focus in on the practical fundamentals of ultrasonography including machine settings, probes and common artefacts with the aim of improving your ability to optimise image quality, thereby improving the diagnostic quality of your ultrasound examinations!
The content will be suitable for all practitioners who perform equine ultrasonography and will include some hints and tips for ultrasonography of the distal limbs.
The stifle joint is the most complex joint in the equine body and imaging this region can be challenging.
The aim of this webinar is to discuss the use of different imaging modalities for evaluation of the stifle, describe the relevant osseous and soft tissue anatomy, and to present a practical approach to radiography and ultrasonography of the region.
Filled with helpful hints and tips, this webinar is equally suitable for those wishing to improve their existing imaging skills or confidence, as well as those who perhaps don't know where to start!
In this webinar, world-renowned orthopaedic specialist and imaging expert Dr Sue Dyson will cover the applied anatomy and ultrasonographic technique and interpretation of the fetlock and pastern.
Filled with practical tips and rich with case examples, this webinar will help both the beginner and more experienced practitioner get the most out their ultrasound examination.
In this webinar, world-renowned orthopaedic specialist and imaging expert Dr Sue Dyson will cover the applied anatomy and ultrasonographic technique and interpretation of the proximal aspect, body, branches, and accessory ligament of the suspensory apparatus of the hindlimbs and forelimbs.
Ultrasonography of the suspensory ligament is frequently indicated in clinical practice, however imaging this area can be challenging. Filled with practical tips, pearls of wisdom and rich with case examples, this webinar will help both the beginner and more experienced practitioner get the most out their ultrasound examination of the suspensory apparatus.
In this webinar the world renowned Equine Reproductive specialist Dr. Jonathan F. Pycock BVetMed PhD DESM MRCVS will take you through the use of ultrasonography to predict ovulation in the mare.
Jonathan will discuss when and what gynaecological recording you should undertake and different indications that help you understand if and when the mare is ovulating and when to breed.
In this webinar, the world renowned Equine Reproductive specialist Dr. Jonathan F. Pycock BVetMed PhD DESM MRCVS will discuss identifying the best time to perform the first scan for pregnancy, ageing the pregnancy and how to identify key structures including yolk sac fluid, allantois, amnion and the embryo proper.
He will also examine fixation - the importance of the cessation of conceptus motility and embryonic development through the stages of pregnancy.
Early pregnancy failure can be a major source of economic loss to the horse breeding industry, and identifying the multi factorial causes involved can be difficult.
In this webinar, world renowned equine reproductive specialist Dr. Jonathan F. Pycock BVetMed PhD DESM MRCVS will guide you through the causes and management of early pregnancy failure. Jonathan will show how ultrasound can be utilised to identify signs of early pregnancy loss, as well as discussing when to treat and the different therapies available to manage cases.
In this webinar, the world renowned Equine Reproductive specialist Dr. Jonathan F. Pycock BVetMed PhD DESM MRCVS will take you through "Keeping the early pregnancy going in the mare".
Jonathan will guide you through the best time to scan for pregnancy using ultrasonography and the different clinical signs that help you determine if the mare will produce a live foal. He will also give you advice and guidance on how you can treat the mare to ensure the mare keeps the early pregnancy through to foal.
Twin detection, management and how to avoid missing twins in the mare is a crucial part of pregnancy management.
In this webinar, world renowned equine reproductive specialist Dr. Jonathan F. Pycock BVetMed PhD DESM MRCVS will guide you through how to detect if twins are present and what courses of action can be taken if twins are confirmed. Jonathan will show how ultrasound can be best utilised in the diagnosis.
In this recorded webinar Kat Evans will guide you through how to maximise the quality, and therefore diagnostic yield, of your radiographs. It will cover setup, choosing exposure settings, identification of artefacts and how to avoid them, and the general principles of positioning.
This webinar is suited to both vets and vet nurses of all experience levels as well as students.
Are issues with your hock radiographs hampering your interpretation? Or are you not sure where to begin when taking x-rays of this complex joint?! Help is at hand.
In this highly practical webinar Laura will guide you through how to maximise the information gained from your hock radiographs. Top tips for acquiring excellent quality standard radiographs, the technique for additional views, and when to use them, is revealed as well as looking at some of the commonly and less commonly seen radiological changes.
This highly practical and informative webinar will take your hock radiography and radiology skills to the next level.
In this edition of the IMV Imaging Journal Club, Clinical Manager Dr Laura Quiney seeks to answer the question: What is new in equine foot radiography?'.
Having developed this Critically Appraised Topic, Laura found a plethora of relevant recent literature. In fact, there was so many papers to discuss that we decided to split this month's journal club into two!
Here, Laura discusses those papers that pertained to radiography of the equine foot and you can watch the interesting discussion that followed the original broadcast.
Following on from 'What's New in Equine Foot Radiography?' Part One, is Part Two.
Here, Laura discusses those papers that pertained to radiography of the equine foot.
IMV imaging and Professor Derek C Knottenbelt OBE, BVM&S, DVM&S, DipECEIM, DACVIM, MRCVS (Recognised RCVS and European Specialist in Equine Internal Medicine) explains in this previously aired live webinar on ‘Colour and Shapes – what they tell us about Equine Eye disease’ and also gives an in depth Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
Have you been questioning why do I need an ultrasound system to assist me in my veterinary diagnosis? or what can ultrasound enable me to do that I can't do already with the tools I have?
Ultrasound technology continues to advance, offering veterinary practitioners a safe and cost-effective diagnostic tool that can be applied in a wide range of clinical scenarios.
The scope of clinical applications for ultrasound is very wide but we can begin to examine some of the uses for sonograph in our handy "ULTRASOUND Uses Guide"
Ultrasonography can provide useful information on osteochondrosis dissecans (OCD) of the
femoropatellar joint, and may be more sensitive than radiography for the identification of some
This horse had a history of blunt trauma to the left tuber coxae, several months previously. The bone surface of the lateral aspect of a normal tuber coxae can appear somewhat irregular, but contiguous, on ultrasonography (Image 1, right tuber coxae).
The metacarpal and metatarsal regions are common sources of pain causing lameness.
Ultrasonography is an important imaging modality for the assessment of the soft tissue structures of these regions.
However, the diagnostic value of this modality is patient, machine, and user dependent. The aim of this article is to provide practical ‘hints and tips’ that can improve image
quality and therefore the diagnostic value of ultrasonography.
