During the Integrative Imaging for Lameness Diagnosis & Treatment track of the AAEP’s Summer Focus Conference & Labs, you’ll expand your knowledge and ability to image core regions of the horse to identify lesion locations and normal anatomy.

You’ll return to practice with an improved ability to pinpoint lameness issues in the hind limb, cervical and thoracolumbar regions of your clients’ horses so that the focus can shift to rehabilitation and the road to recovery.

The program will conclude with an optional half-day of wet labs at nearby North Carolina State University.  In small groups, you’ll rotate through four hour-long lab stations devoted to ultrasound-guided needle placement, ultrasound of the hind proximal metatarsus, ultrasound of the stifle and ultrasound of the back.

The two-day lecture portion of this meeting provides attendees with 17.5 CE hours; those who also participate in the wet labs receive 21.5 CE hours. Complete educational program and registration information is available below.

You’ll strengthen client relations with practical take-home knowledge in the areas of lameness, problem mares, neonatal foals, dermatology, ophthalmology, field endoscopy, preventative care and more.

The program will conclude with an optional wet labs day at nearby North Carolina State University that will provide hands-on application of lecture concepts and procedures. In small groups, you’ll rotate through four lab stations, practicing techniques essential to administration of proper care for respiratory, ophthalmology, reproduction and lameness conditions.
