The Diagnostic Imaging Department at the QVSH works closely with all other departments of the Vet School, to provide a comprehensive imaging service. Clinicians have access to traditional imaging modalities alongside newer cross-sectional and nuclear imaging techniques, to assist in diagnosing disease and assessing the effectiveness of patient treatments.
We are happy to discuss any imaging-related questions you may have. We also have a diagnostic imaging interpretation service for external veterinarians (we accept DICOM images [either emailed directly, via cloud or burned CD via mail] or radiographs for interpretation).
Services offered include
• Digital Radiography and Ultrasound including echocardiography
• On site small animal MRI
• On site 16 slice CT scanner in conjunction with Cambridge Radiology Referrals
• Digital Fluoroscopy and Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) for interventional procedures, including minimally invasive coil embolisation of intrahepatic portosystemic shunts, and cardiac catheterisation.
During term time a fortnightly film reading session is offered for veterinarians on Wednesday evenings. This takes place between 7.00pm and 10pm. Films are available to view from 7.00pm and discussion takes place from 9.00pm. Please contact the department for further details.
We are led by two European Specialists in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging. Our team includes three radiographers, one veterinary nurse, two senior clinical training scholars and one clinical radiologist.
