WE WANT TO BE YOUR RADIOLOGISTS!
Vet-Rad was founded 26 years ago, and is comprised of clinical radiologists with over 100 years of experience. We are the radiologists for more than 900 veterinary hospitals, emergency clinics, and referral centers across the United States, from California to Maine to Florida.
- We provide 24/7/365 service.
- Our consultation fee for digital radiographs transmitted directly to us over the Internet is $55/case, with NO extra charge for Vet-Rad STAT submissions.
- Our turnaround time is FAST! Most routine cases are turned around within an hour or two during our normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm, Eastern). During these hours, Vet-Rad STAT cases are usually turned around within 30-45 minutes. We read cases outside our normal business hours, but the turnaround time may be longer. We partner with DVMIStat for services outside our normal business hours. The fee for a DVMIStat submission is $89, with an average turnaround time of approximately 1 hour. DVMIStat submissions are designed for cases submitted outside of our normal business hours when you need a report back quickly.
- We do NOT charge extra for submissions where there are multiple images. If you send an upper GI study with a dozen images, the fee is still $55/case.
- We know we have lots of competition. For that reason, we work hard to keep our clients happy. We frequently call on the phone to discuss cases, and we're always available to discuss cases if you would like to call us.
Vet-Rad radiologists are on-site imaging specialists at the Akron Veterinary Referral & Emergency Center, Animal Emergency+Specialty Center, Great Lakes Veterinary Specialists, and Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital. At these referral centers, Vet-Rad radiologists work with specialists in internal medicine, surgery, oncology, neurology, cardiology, ophthalmology, dermatology, emergency and critical care medicine, and veterinary practice (ABVP).
WHAT IS A VETERINARY RADIOLOGIST?
A veterinary radiologist is a specialist who has received intensive training in medical imaging (radiology, ultrasonography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear imaging, etc.). This training takes place during a 3 or 4 year radiology residency. The American College of Veterinary Radiology administers preliminary and certifying board examinations to radiology residents to ensure clinical competency.
Vet-Rad maintains quality control standards, similar to those in human teleradiology, to ensure the highest diagnostic accuracy of our interpretations. We utilize state-of-the-art teleradiology workstations, comprised of powerful computers coupled to high resolution viewing monitors, to evaluate your digital radiographs. more >
