CSU faculty are presenting a 1-day seminar and laboratory, sponsored by Pfizer, on maximizing the use of your ultrasound machine for musculoskeletal imaging. Although we have presented many seminars on ultrasound imaging, attendees are often frustrated that their newly-learned skills do not work as well with their own machine. Therefore, with the sponsorship from Pfizer, we are inviting veterinarians to bring their own ultrasound machine and work with CSU faculty to enhance their images. Short lectures will be presented in the morning followed by live horse demonstrations and practical hands-on experiences in the afternoon. We hope you take advantage of this opportunity.
