"I was able to immediately corr¬elate what I was seeing with what I felt on palpation. I also didn't have the vet waiting on me, could work at my own pace, and take pictures for later review. Thank you BCF! I learned a lot and really benefited from being able to use one of the ultrasounds in the University Program. I look forward to working with you again in 4th year."
