From Dr. Dyson’s proceeding notes:

“The Art and Science of Lameness Diagnosis – How a careful assessment and a logical approach usually lead to a diagnosis – but how it is important to be aware of the limitations of all of our diagnostic techniques.

These case presentations aim to consider specific clinical scenarios in depth and to discuss related topics. The importance of clinical assessment and diagnostic analgesia is emphasized, together with the appropriate use of diagnostic imaging and correct interpretation of images.”
