hands on veterinary ultrasound training video

SDEP® is a numbers-based, repeatable approach in a 17-point protocol that produces a full abdominal scan, from the deep pelvic urethra to diaphragm and everything in between. In this comprehensive series, Dr. Lindquist walks you through the needed probe movements on his patient with associated ultrasound images.

The bundle includes lecture and hands-on technique sections. This series is an excellent substitute when hands-on training is not possible, or as a supplement to hands-on learning after one of our SDEP® courses. The course is appropriate for ALL levels of scanning. Beginners can grasp, and build on the fundamentals.

Intermediate users can benefit by improving efficiency and image sets, while advanced users can push the paces on more advanced sonography techniques like shunt hunts, adrenals, and more. 


As a student, you'll get a few great benefits from being here:


  • The SDEP® 17pt Abdominal Lectures. An in-depth presentation of the philosophy and reasoning behind the development of SDEP® and the key features; basic ultrasound terminology and knobology; the functions of the various probes, and a thorough dissection of the 17 points one by one with illustrative videos of each position.

  • The SDEP® 17pt Technique Videos. Individual training modules on each step covered in the lecture, so you can readily spend as much or as little time with each as needed. First, practice the unique SDEP® probe manipulation and scanning motions detailed in the intro, then proceed to each module with your patient as Dr Lindquist walks you through the needed probe movements on his patient with associated position videos.

  • Bootcamp Sessions. Ready your patient and scan as you listen to Dr Lindquist talk you through an entire abdomen. Each session moves you along in both speed and more challenging views, allowing progression as you are ready.

  • Extended Training Modules. Round out the training program addressing areas of particular difficulty for most (adrenals), or of less common need but will certainly come up as some point (cryptorchid), or are an absolute critical need when indicated (shunt, thyroid).
