Radiography for Veterinary Nurses

Approved for 8 CVE Credits by VCI

This highly interactive and case-based course aims to provide further training to Veterinary Nurses who have an interest in radiography. The merit of a good quality radiograph cannot be emphasized enough! Interpretation and subsequent differential diagnoses are contingent upon adequate exposure settings and great positioning. Tricks of the trade that are easy to learn and implement, but are so often overlooked in the busy GP clinical setting, are simple yet highly effective. This course will provide lectures, case-based scenarios, quizzes and practical sessions and encourage collaborative radiograph critique. We look forward to you joining us!
