World-renowned equine musculoskeletal system anatomist, Professor Jean-Marie Denoix will once again be teaching our Orthopaedic Ultrasound course. He gives us an insight into what the course will cover, and how these techniques can be used in real-life situations.


The ultrasonographic anatomy of the cervical articular process joints will be demonstrated using transverse and transarticular sections. Findings from clinical cases with cervical injuries will be presented. The technique for perfroming safe ultrasonographic guided injections of these joints will be demonstrated. The ultrasonographic diagnosis of cervical muscle injuries will also be presented. 

The ultrasonographic techniques for diagnosing lesions of the spinous procesess and articular process joints in the thoracolumbar spine will be shown, as well as the techniques for performing adequate ultrasonographic guided injection of kissing spines and intervertebral arthropathies. 

Ultrasonography is the technique of choice in practice for diagnosing pelvis fractures and lumbosacral as well as sacroiliac anthropathy in horses. The live ultrasonographic anatomy will be demonstrated in detail and numerous conditions will be presented to illustrate the diagnostic performance of ultrasonography. The technique for perfroming effective and safe ultrasonographic guided injections of lumbosacral and sacroiliac joints will be demonstrated. 

Due to the variety of soft tissues in the femorotibial and femoropatellar joints, ultrasonography is the ideal field technique for investigating stifle injuries. Ultrasonographic anatomy will be presented and illustrated with findings of osteochondral, ligamentous and meniscal conditions. Ultrasonographic guided injections of the femoropatellar, medial and lateral femorotibial joints will be shown.
