Just as in human medicine, there are several specialties in veterinary medicine.
Veterinary Radiologists have completed extensive and specialized training in their unique field of interest. After completing an undergraduate degree and then a 4-year veterinary degree (DVM), veterinarians go on to a rotating internship, followed by a 3-year Radiology Residency Program.
During this time, they are trained in all diagnostic imaging modalities. After they complete their residency, veterinary radiologist residents must also pass difficult examinations in order to become board certified. Once board certified, they are given the distinction of being a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Radiologists (DACVR).
