WE WANT TO BE YOUR RADIOLOGISTS!
VetRad was founded in 1990, and is comprised of board-certified radiologists with extensive clinical experience. We are the radiologists for more than 1000 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 during our normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm, Eastern) is $60/case, with NO extra charge for VetRad STAT submissions during normal business hours.
- Our turnaround time is FAST! Most routine cases are turned around within an hour or two during our normal business hours. During these hours, VetRad 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 $99, 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.
VetRad radiologists are on-site imaging specialists at MedVet Akron, MedVet Cleveland West and VCA Great Lakes Veterinary Specialists. At these referral centers, VetRad radiologists work with specialists in internal medicine, surgery, oncology, neurology, cardiology, ophthalmology, dermatology and emergency and critical care medicine.
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.
VetRad 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 >
