OPA CPD event 22 Aug 2016

OPA CPD event at Moredun on Monday 22 August 2016

The aim of this course is to provide advanced clinical training for veterinary practitioners wishing to offer transthoracic ultrasound as a method for screening for OPA.  This course will also be suitable for vets studying towards Advanced Practitioner status in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging or Sheep Health and Production.

The main focus of the day will be to provide one-to-one practical training on scanning live sheep with or without OPA, following this up with necropsy of the sheep so that the association between the scan output and gross lesions can be confirmed.  This will follow short presentations covering the most up-to-date knowledge on OPA and transthoracic ultrasound scanning. 

Maximum 12 participants.  Cost £250   CPD  approx. 7h including 4h practical training. Lunch included. There will be several ultrasound scanners available. Approximately 10-15 cases of OPA at various stages will be available as well as negative control sheep.

A datastick will be provided for each participant with all course materials including ultrasound video recordings of ovine respiratory diseases for future reference.  Participants are invited to bring along their own ultrasound machines and may make their own recordings.
