2018 IAAAM Pre-Conference Workshops

6th Annual Marine Mammal Diagnostic Imaging Workshop

6th annual IAAAM Marine Mammal Diagnostic Imaging Workshop presented by board-certified radiologist Marina Ivančić of the Chicago Zoological Society / Brookfield Zoo. Workshop will cover a variety of both fundamental and advanced concepts in marine mammal imaging geared towards aquatic animal veterinarians with marine mammals in their care. Effort is made to tailor subject matter to each year's participants by having attendees submit requests in advance. Topics will include a combination of principles of diagnostic image acquisition and interpretation, a discussion of imaging modalities as they pertain to marine mammal medicine, case presentations, and a question/answer session with Dr. Ivančić.
