Is This Really Pancreatitis?

Date: 31st October 2023, 18:00-18:45 (GMT)

Elevated lipase levels alone do not necessarily indicate pancreatitis. In this session, we will examine cases that support this statement. However, how can we accurately diagnose pancreatitis? What key aspects should we focus on, and what steps should we take when unsure about the diagnosis?

Pitfalls of Urinalysis

Date: 5th September, 18:00-18:45 (GMT)
Speaker: Sandra Lapsina Dipl. ECVCP candidate

Urinalysis is a laboratory test that is best performed on-site. However, correct preparation and assessment require skill. How do you interpret a dipstick and refractometer? How can you obtain sediment without damaging it? What are the various elements seen in sediments? And what should you keep in mind if the urine sample needs to be sent to the reference lab? Together, we will cover these questions and more, including the most common pitfalls of urinalysis.
