Membership in ACVR's special interest societies is open to anyone with an interest in the goals of each society.

Veterinarians or non-veterinarians with an interest in Ultrasound, CT/MRI, Nuclear Medicine, or Large Animal Diagnostic Imaging can join one or more of the ACVR Societies. Please see ACVR Membership Categories for a definition of the types of ACVR membership. Each Society maintains an email listserver for discussion of topics related to its particular specialty. You must be a member of the Society to belong to its list. See Join an ACVR Society for more information and benefits of membership.


2015 ACVR Annual Scientific Meeting

  • The 2015 Annual Scientific Conference of the American College of Veterinary Radiology will be held on October 7-10, 2015 at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center Hotel, Minneapolis, MN. See Minneapolis 2015.
    • ACVR Diplomates are required to register and attend at least one annual meeting every three years. Please check your account on the website for past meeting attendance. Participation by an ACVR Diplomate in an ACVR Annual Scientific Meeting as a Sponsor/Exhibitor or Sponsor/Exhibitor Representative does not satisfy the ACVR Constitutional requirement (Article V, Section 2b3) of registering for and attending an ACVR Annual Meeting once every 3 years. ACVR Diplomates must register for the meeting as a Diplomate to meet this attendance requirement.
    • Also, any Diplomate who registers, but does not pick up a badge at the registration desk is considered a no-show.
    • THERE WILL BE NO RADIATION ONCOLOGY PROGRAM AT THE 2015 ACVR MEETING. Those RO Diplomates who are required to attend the 2015 ACVR meeting and wish to attend this year's ASTRO meeting instead, must obtain a waiver from the Executive Director, Dr. Tod Drost <>. Please note that the Diplomates who are applying to Dr. Tod Drost for a waiver for ACVR meeting attendance, must attend the ACVR-RO business meeting in San Antonio in order to be given their waiver. Those obtaining a waiver this year must attend the 2016 ACVR meeting in Orlando next year to comply with the 3-year ACVR meeting attendance requirement.
