The new faculty member’s primary responsibility (~ 60%) will be in the provision of clinical imaging services to the Veterinary Health Complex in the recently opened state-of-the-art Randall B.

A DVM or equivalent degree is required.  Preference will be given to candidates who are board certified in radiology by the American College of Veterinary Radiology but candidates certified by other specialty colleges in imaging or candidates who are board-eligible for the American College of Veterinary Radiology will also be considered.

Diagnostic imaging in the Veterinary Health Complex is extremely well equipped with 4 Canon digital radiographic systems (2 small animal, 2 equine), a digital RF room, a biplane cath lab, 2 GE Logic e9 ultrasound machines for small animal imaging, a Mylab 70 XVG for equine orthopedics and assorted portable equine ultrasound machines, an equine/small animal nuclear medicine suite using Mirage software, 2 Siemens CT machines,  (16 slice for equine and 64 slice for small animal), and access to a fully appointed onsite Siemens 1.5 T MR small animal and equine suite owned by AnimalScan LLC.

The RIS and PACS are readily accessible offsite and via iOS devices. 

There are 3 other full-time radiologists, 4 radiology residents, and 11 technologists and support staff. The radiology department is a congenial team-oriented group which is excited about the prospects of furthering the development of imaging at NCSU in collaboration with the talents and ideas of a new faculty member.  The Veterinary Health Complex is a wonderful workplace with enthusiastic students, technologists and other faculty specialists who work together to provide excellent veterinary medical care and to advance the knowledge base.
