Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging - VETS4134

Year - 2018

This course commences with an introduction to important fundamental concepts in Diagnostic Imaging, including radiation safety. Following this is a systems based approach that covers the radiographic appearance of the normal structure and function of the various organ systems commonly investigated by radiology. Students will then be taught to recognise, describe and diagnose the changes in structure and function related to diseases that are commonly found on radiographs. The course also includes an introduction to special radiological techniques (including radiological contrast studies used to further demonstrate disease), digital radiology, advanced imaging techniques (MRI and CT), and the role of Ultrasound in the diagnosis of soft tissue disease.
