Equine Joint Ultrasonography & Joint Therapy - 2-Day Practical Course

From Friday, March, 28, 2014 to Saturday, March, 29, 2014 in Them
Starting from:08:00
Concerned sectors: Veterinary -
Over the past 10 years ultrasonography has established itself as one of the most readily accessible imaging modalities available to equine practitioners when investigating lame horses.   This two-day practical course was designed to provide veterinarians from mixed or equine practice with the theoretical and especially the practical skills to examine every single joint of the equine front- and hindlimb ultrasonographically.  A panel of international experts who have dedicated a significant proportion of their careers to musculoskeletal ultrasonography are involved with this course.  The first day will focus on ultrasonography of the frontlimb and on the second day the hindlimb will be covered together with a detailed review on conventional and regenerative systemic and intra-articular joint therapies.

The following highly illustrated lectures (in English, no translation but with Danish & German moderation) will be held in the mornings: 

How to get the most out of your ultrasound machine
Ultrasonographic anatomy and conditions of the Foot & Pastern
Fetlock & Digital Flexor Tendon Sheath
Carpus & Carpal Sheath
Elbow & Shoulder Joint
Tarsus, Tarsal Bursae & Sheath
Stifle Joint
Hip Joint & Pelvis
Conventional systemic & intra-articular Joint Therapies
Regenerative systemic & intra-articular Joint Therapies
In the afternoons, two 4-hour small group sessions (3 – 4 delegates/ultrasound machine) will give delegates plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live/dead horses under the supervision of the specialists.  There will furthermore be plenty of time for discussions and each delegate will rotate through the following practical stations:

Foot & Pastern                                                
Fetlock & Digital Flexor Tendon Sheath                
Carpus & Carpal Sheath                                               
Elbow & Shoulder Joints              
Tarsus, Tarsal Bursae & Sheath                                                 
Stifle Joint                                                                                         
Hip Joint & Pelvis                                                                            
Ultrasound-Guided Injections  
The course fee includes lunches, coffee/tea breaks, extensive course notes and a certificate of attendance.  On the evening of the first day a course dinner with all the speakers and hopefully many delegates, will be held.  The price for the course dinner is 380 DKK (not included in the registration fee; drinks will be charged extra).  Early course registration is recommended as places are limited due to the highly practical nature of this course.
