19.00pm
Highcroft Veterinary Group, Clue House, Bristol, BS14 9BZ Free evening Veterinary CPD! Buffet at 19:00pm, presentation 19.30pm With speaker Fernando Liste DVM MSc PhD MRCVS Radiographic interpretation of pulmonary disease is a critical part of veterinary diagnostics. To interpret lungs on radiography, it is necessary to know how to recognise the different types of lung patterns that can be seen. It is also important to know the different types of distribution of pulmonary diseases, as some diseases will have a different location compared with others, and that feature is as useful as the lung pattern for establishing a differential diagnosis. In this presentation we will aim to detail those lung patterns and explain how to interpret pulmonary diseases.
