Research Focus: Head and neck imaging in animals
As a clinical scientist and veterinary radiologist, the broadest description of my research is the use of imaging and epidemiologic techniques for investigating and establishing the best clinical practices in animal health care. My specific research focus is advancing the understanding of head and neck disorders, with emphasis on the role of the underlying morphology. Modern technological innovations have made imaging indispensable for evaluating conditions that involve the complex structures of the head and neck (eg, skull base, central nervous system, deep vascular and lymphatic tissues, paranasal sinuses, endocrine glands)—especially when considering the vast anatomic variation among species. My research has direct benefit to the animals that are commonly admitted to our hospital (ie, dogs, horses, and cats) and the people associated with these animals.
Clinical Interests: CT/MRI; Neuroimaging; Pulmonary imaging; small and large animals
Teaching Interests: Anatomy, Thoracic Imaging, CT/MRI, Radiology, small and large animals
We employ both licensed veterinary technicians (LVT) and licensed radiology technicians (RT) who work together to care for your animal and obtain the best medical images possible. Our technical staff has more than 125 YEARS combined and continuous experience in veterinary imaging at CUHA!
We also employ a full-time biomedical engineer to maintain, calibrate and repair our imaging equipment optimizing our quality and minimizing downtime.
