Learn How to Scan the Equine Distal Limb with a Series of Free Videos from BCF

As part of their on-going commitment to learning, imaging providersBCF Technology has created a 3rd series of free learning videos, this time for equine veterinarians.

BCF’s in-house vet Ben Sullivan BVSc MRCVS has created the new 14 part series of equine videos which explain step-by-step how to perform an ultrasound examination of the equine distal limb.

The videos have been created in association with the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA).

The video series aims to provide a solid knowledge of the basic principles and techniques involved in acquiring and interpreting diagnostic quality ultrasonographic images of the equine distal limb, with a particular focus on the soft tissue structures of the palmar metacarpus and plantar metatarsus, and also the palmar and plantar pastern region.

Once you have completed the video series, there is an opportunity to earn a 1 hour CPD certificate by completing a short questionnaire.

Ben commented,

“We have now released a series of videos for the small animal, bovine and equine fields of interest. The aim of the videos is to help any vet gain at least a basic knowledge of ultrasonography in their particular field. They provide a good starting point for people new to ultrasound, or a refresher for those who haven’t used it in a while.”

Visit the equine learning section of the BCF website under training courses to find the series of videos and the self-assessment quiz.

Special thanks to Filham Park Vets for the use of their facilities during the filming of these videos.
