Keynote Speakers & Presenters:
Dr. Wendy Blount  &  Dr. Brian Huber

An increasing number of animal owners now expect to have diagnostic imaging such as UltraSound to be a part of the standard of care for their animals. This is due in part to the practice of veterinary medicine advancing further into the digital age with each passing day. Rather than refer clients out of their clinic, more and more veterinarians are deciding to provide UltraSound in-house to offer a more complete service to their patients while adding a valuable profit center.

To help with the transition into this future of veterinary medicine, Dr. Blount and Dr. Huber have joined together to present the "Practical UltraSound" seminar. They invite you to attend this unique, first of its kind UltraSound seminar. You'll be presented with a wealth of knowledge you can put to use starting immediately in your clinic, and in addition you'll fulfill your total requirement of 17 CE Hours for 2016.

This entire seminar a case based exploration of exactly how UltraSound plays a vital role in successful diagnosis and treatment.
You'll also learn many little known and often overlooked secrets to make sonograms much easier to read and to determine how to put the images you see to the most effective use.

No matter what your current situation is concerning UltraSound, this seminar has a lot to offer you:

  • If you already have UltraSound and are using it in your clinic, this seminar with enable you to sharpen your skills and reading effectiveness.

  • If you have an UltraSound in your clinic, but it's a dust gathering eyesore rather than a useful tool generating profit for you, this seminar will help you turn that picture around.

  • If you don't have an UltraSound but think you might like to, but are concerned that they cost too much and require too much time and effort to learn to read and use, this seminar will offer you some viable solutions.

  • Even if you are not sure you want an UltraSound machine for your clinic, this seminar will help you make that decision based on legitimate factors and logical reasoning.
