Include a Veterinary Radiologist or Radiation Oncologist as part of your Health Care Team.

Rapid advances in the veterinary profession can make it difficult for veterinarians to remain current with recent developments in some of today's complex diagnostic imaging or radiation therapy procedures. The ACVR Radiologist or Radiation Oncologist has the training, expertise, and equipment to perform the latest state-of-the art procedures to help the primary care veterinarian provide the best possible care to the patient. See the Directory of Diplomates to find a board-certified radiologist or radiation oncologist near you.

 

We are Specialists in Radiology, Ultrasonography, CT/MRI, Nuclear Medicine, and Radiation Oncology for both Small and Large Animals.

Clients routinely deal with specialists in human healthcare and are familiar with the concept of specialization and the consultation process. Owners appreciate consultations and/or referrals for specialized imaging, image interpretation or radiation therapy procedures. See Types of Imaging & Therapy for more information about these types of procedures. Many ACVR Radiologists and Radiation Oncologists in private practice work at "referral-only" animal hospitals. Such practices require that the primary care veterinarian contact the radiologist or radiation oncologist. In this way, the radiologist or radiation oncologist can be properly informed as to the patient's history and the scope of the current problem. See the Directory of Diplomates to find a board-certified radiologist or radiation oncologist near you.

 

We Consult with your Veterinarian to Ensure the Best Possible Outcome for your Pet.

Once the consultation and/or referral is made, the ACVR specialist will provide state-of-the-art imaging, interpretation or radiation therapy procedures. As part of the healthcare team, the radiologist or radiation oncologist will inform the referring veterinarian of the patient's progress and the results of the imaging study or radiation therapy procedure. Usually the referring veterinarian communicates with the client, but the radiologist or radiation oncologist may do so as well. After the imaging or radiation therapy procedures are completed, the animal is returned to the referring veterinarian for follow-up care. This continuity between the ACVR specialist and primary care veterinarian ensures the best possible outcome for the patient.
