|WE WANT TO BE YOUR RADIOLOGISTS
Vet-Rad was founded 23 years ago, and is comprised of five board-certified radiologists with over 80 years of clinical experience. This clinical experience gives us an advantage over most other radiology and teleradiology services. Vet-Rad consults with over 900 veterinary hospitals, emergency clinics, and referral centers from coast to coast across the United States. Drs. Bennett Fagin, Bill Weber, Marianna Schafer, Todd Henrikson, and Pat Rose are the staff radiologists at the Akron Veterinary Referral & Emergency Center, Cleveland Veterinary Referral Service, 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 medical monitors, to evaluate your digital radiographs. more >
