Additional news and meeting information are provided through the AAVDI web page. The association also produces teaching videotapes to provide additional tuition to veterinarians wishing to improve their imaging skills.

Teaching Videotapes.

Protocol for Abdominal Ultrasonography of a Dog by Kathy SpauldingUltrasonography of Abdominal Blood Vessels and lymph Nodes by Kathy Spaulding.

Two videotapes were created during the AAVDI Abdominal Ultrasonography continuing education meeting in Sydney in 1998. The tapes demonstrate a systematic approach to abdominal ultrasonography in the dog, and are an ideal resource for anyone learning abdominal ultrasonography. These tapes may be purchased by AAVDI members.

Ultrasonography for Polycystic Kidney Disease.
