BCF Technology Release New How To Cardiac Ultrasound Videos


BCF Technology has done it again. New free CPD videos showing how to conduct a basic cardiac ultrasound examination in small animals are now available.

BCF in-house vet Kimberly Palgrave BS BVM&S GPCert(DI) MRCVS presents a series of free online instructional step-by-step videos demonstrating how to perform a basic cardiac ultrasound examination in the general practice setting.

These 3-5 minute videos also cover how to alter the controls on your ultrasound machine to get the most from your equipment.

The cardiac ultrasound videos follow a series of videos created by BCF on scanning the small animal abdomen last year. The abdominal videos have had in total over 25,000 views on YouTube so far.

Kimberly Palgrave said,

“Following some fantastic feedback on the abdominal ultrasound videos we made last year, we decided to produce this series of basic echocardiography videos. People were asking for help with cardiac examinations and we were happy to help. Please do let us know what you think and what you would like us to cover next?”

Gavin Mitchell from BCF commented,

“At BCF we are committed to helping you learn more to ensure you and your team get the very best from your ultrasound equipment. These videos are just one way that BCF contribute to veterinary learning. We run and support training courses and we can also arrange for a member of our team to come into your practice and provide a day of training. At BCF we do so much more than just sell ultrasound and X-ray kit. We strive to help you learn how to use your diagnostic imaging equipment and support you with advice, technical back-up, service and repair.”

These videos have been produced in collaboration with The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, The University of Edinburgh and we are very grateful for their assistance and technical expertise.
