Clinical Diagnostic Imaging

2 credit hours | Starts September 14
Overview

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
