A lot has changed since I wrote a blog post for EI Medical in 2011! I have a new last name, two little kids and I no longer use clippers when scanning calf lungs. I am still scanning calf lungs with my Ibex PRO/r and teaching veterinarians and veterinary students the technique. Out on farm and in research, we are now all using one scoring system developed by Dr. Terri Ollivett from University of Wisconsin.
Theresa L. Ollivett, DVM, PhD, DACVIM, Assistant Professor of Food Animal Production Medicine at the University of Wisconsin, held her annual lung ultrasound lab recently.
Dr. Ollivett is known for her research into bovine lung health and advocates the use of on-farm ultrasonography to detect bovine respiratory disease. Weaning calves with clean lungs is one of her passions.
She shared a few images from her lab with us.
