VANCOUVER, BC, March 11, 2021 / PRNewswire / – In a recent webinar survey, Clarius Mobile Health found that 81% of 364 veterinarians see improved diagnostic accuracy as the primary benefit of using ultrasound in their practice and 58% found the benefit of starting treatment earlier. While adoption is growing rapidly, not every veterinary practice today offers ultrasound. Another survey made it clear that a lack of exercise options and ultrasound skills are the main barriers to widespread adoption.
On March 31, 2021, Dr. Soren Boysen and Dr. Serge Chalhoub from a leading veterinary school in Canada will learn how to differentiate common causes of coughs and breathing difficulties in cats and dogs in a one-hour webinar: Veterinary Point-of-Care of the Pleural Space and Pulmonary Ultrasound for Daily Practice. The free registration is now open.
To meet this need for ultrasound training, wireless ultrasound pioneer Clarius Mobile Health has hired ultrasound educators to provide hands-on webinars for veterinarians.
“At Clarius, we’ve seen a 1,300% increase in sales of hand-held veterinary ultrasound scanners over the past three years. With the closure of medical conferences and face-to-face workshops last year, we’ve completed online training to serve our growing community of veterinary users. In our first veterinary webinar, we were excited to welcome thousands of registrants looking for training, “said Genèse Castonguay, Marketing Vice President at Clarius. “With our new series of webinars, we’re excited to partner with ultrasound professionals who are passionate about helping their peers learn practical imaging skills and ensure better patient care.”
On March 31, 2021, DR. Soren Boysen and Dr. Serge Chalhoub from a leading veterinary school in Canada In a one-hour webinar you will learn how to differentiate common causes of coughs and breathing difficulties in cats and dogs: veterinary pleural space and pulmonary ultrasound for daily practice. The free registration is now open.
Veterinary point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) of the pleural space and lungs (PLUS) is commonly used as a patient-side diagnostic tool to quickly identify the underlying conditions and guide further diagnostics and begin initial therapy. The webinar is an interactive lecture with case studies and provides easy-to-learn practical ultrasound skills that veterinarians can apply in day-to-day practice.
“On-site ultrasound has become an essential piece of the puzzle when it comes to treating veterinary patients,” said Dr. Soren Boysen, Professor of Veterinary Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences. “We can actually get a very quick assessment of the causes of the patient’s breathing difficulties or coughing right there on the cage side in 30 to 60 seconds. That first-line assessment with the point-of-care ultrasound, correct when the patient walks in, is extremely good effective at comforting the owners, figuring out where we’re going, and discussing projections, costs, etc. It makes a big difference how we treat these patients. ”
In addition to live webinars, Clarius offers pre-recorded webinars for viewing on demand. Last month’s webinar was hosted by ultrasound educator Dr. Camilla Edwards, DVM, CertAVP, MRCVS: Practical small animal ultrasound: diagnosis of pathology with intestinal gallbladder and spleen examinations. Dr. Edwards has also contributed three new tutorial videos, which are now available for viewing in the Clarius Classroom at http://www.clarius.com/classroom.
