Imaging is an essential part of the diagnostic workup in small animal emergency cases. This laboratory will focus on helping the emergency and/or the general practitioner more effectively use radiography and ultrasound in the emergency setting. A short lecture will be given at the beginning of the session covering important principles of radiology and ultrasound in the ER. Participants will then break into small groups where they will have the opportunity to review cases demonstrating key points and potential pitfalls in the diagnosis of common and uncommon cases seen in the ER.  Participants will have an opportunity to practice Focused Abdominal Sonography in Trauma (FAST) exams. Simple but valuable additional tools such as the addition of non-standard radiographic views and compression radiography will also be covered.
