Veterinary radiologists who are board certified
by the American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR) are uniquely qualified to render first or second opinions on radiographs, ultrasound examinations, CT, MRI, and many other diagnostic imaging modalities. These veterinarians have completed a formal three- to four-year residency in diagnostic imaging and have undergone intense formal training and practical experience in diagnostic imaging of both small and large animal species. There are approximately 575 board certified veterinary radiologists practicing in the United States. Certification by the ACVR assures competency in performance of the diagnostic imaging, as well as the interpretation of the results.
