Clinical Diagnostic Imaging
This course is heavily case-based - just like a face-to-face clinical rotation is - and uses over 40 imaging cases selected by board-certified radiologists, to ensure learners are prepared to interpret and diagnose the most common diseases presenting to an entry-level small animal veterinarian.
Course utilizes a curated library of clinical cases to cover
- The most common radiographic diseases of dogs and cats
- Clinically-relevant fundamentals of radiography
- Normal radiographic anatomy, including breed and species variants
- All body systems
