DISTINGUISHED WET LAB INSTRUCTORS The Comprehensive Ultrasound Imaging Wet Lab provides an in-depth overview of imaging in the following anatomical areas: Pastern and Foot, Proximal Suspensory Ligament, Thorax/Abdomen, Stifle, Metacarpal Region. STATION 1: PASTERN AND FOOT
ARIC ADAMS DVM, DACVS
With the widespread use of MRI for the diagnosis of soft tissue injuries in horses, some equine lameness diagnosticians have forgotten the value of ultrasonographic examination of the pastern and foot. Although the complex anatomy of this region can be intimidating when interpreting ultrasonographic abnormalities, a welltrained ultrasonographer can gather a vast amount of information regarding the soft tissue structures in the pastern and, to a lesser degree, in the foot. In this wet lab, we will review pertinent anatomy of the pastern and foot. You will get hands-on experience performing a structured, detailed examination of the pastern and foot. Emphasis will be placed on the visualization of anatomic structures that are most commonly injured, and the ability to discern artifact from actual lesions.
STATION 2: PROXIMAL SUSPENSORY LIGAMENT
TIMOTHY LYNCH DVM, DACVS, DACVSMR
The proximal suspensory ligament is often implicated in both front and rear limb lameness. Ultrasound examination of the proximal suspensory ligament is useful in helping diagnose proximal suspensory ligaments injuries. However, ultrasound of the proximal suspensory ligament, especially in the rear limb, can be difficult and result in less than diagnostic images. Images of the proximal suspensory ligament are dependent on proper preparation of the patient, equipment set up, and operator experience. Participants in this wet lab will examine the proximal suspensory ligament, and learn tips and tricks to produce diagnostic images of the proximal suspensory ligament.
STATION 3: THORAX/ABDOMEN This station will cover the approach to ultrasound evaluation of the equine thorax and abdomen. Relevant landmarks will be reviewed, as well as probe handling and image refinement. A general overview of the FLASH technique for evaluation of the acute abdomen will be included. Participants will master the following skills:
TRACY NORMAN VMD, DACVIM
Thorax: Performing examination using intercostal technique; Identify the pleural surface; Identify the diaphragm Abdomen: Performing examination in systematic fashion; Identify the nephrosplenic space; Identify the stomach; Identify small intestine; Distinguish liver from spleen; Identify the diaphragm; Identify the right kidney; Follow the duodenum
STATION 4: STIFLE Attendees will learn the normal ultrasonographic anatomy of the stifle. The emphasis will be on imaging the joint structures, ligaments and menisci that are commonly injured.
SUZAN OAKLEY DVM, DACVSMR, DABVP (Equine)
STATION 5: METACARPAL REGION Examination of the metacarpal region from the accessory carpal bone to the ergot, with specific review of the flexor tendons, the digital sheath, and the ligamentous structures. If time permits, we will examine the fetlock, with particular interest in the collateral ligaments.

LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT Dear Colleagues, As we celebrate the 55th year of the Ocala Equine Conference, we also reflect upon the year that was 2017, which presented us with particular challenges during an active hurricane season. Damage to our beachside venue from Hurricane Irma made the facility incapable of hosting the 2017 Promoting Excellence Symposium. Rather than cancel the meeting entirely, the FAEP council opted to seek alternative sites. Tremendous effort on the part of the FVMA staff made it possible to move the entire conference to Orlando within four weeks of the meeting date, truly nothing short of a miracle. The meeting was a complete success, and was well supported by our loyal attendees, surpassing previous attendance records altogether. The new year brings new resolve and energy. And with that, we invite you to attend the 55th annual Ocala Equine Conference, January 19-21, 2018. Our event, “For Practitioners by Practitioners,” will take place at the newly-renovated Hilton Ocala, and features a program of cutting-edge lectures from world-class speakers, providing 25 hours of high-quality continuing education. We are excited to once again host the ever-popular, extensive ultrasound wet lab, featuring instruction in small groups from experts in the field. The Ocala Equine Conference provides an exciting opportunity for the exchange of ideas and partnership in the equine veterinary medical team, in an intimate environment. We invite you to the “Horse Capital of the World” for outstanding CE, and to connect with more than 50 industry representatives who will showcase their products and services in the vibrant exhibit hall. A very special “thank you” again to the FVMA staff, without whom these outstanding continuing education programs would not be possible. “Happy Holidays” to you all, we look forward to seeing you next January in Ocala!
