At its core, the mission of the American College of Veterinary Radiology is fulfilled by partnering with primary care veterinarians and veterinary technicians to provide comprehensive health care. Radiology residency training programs (in General Diagnostic Imaging, Equine Diagnostic Imaging, and Radiation Oncology) require support from other specialty organizations and from more than one radiologist. Daily interactions with veterinary technologists allow radiologists to support quality control of imaging studies and to maintain radiation safety standards. Radiologists and radiation oncologists work the “frontline” of veterinary medicine, consulting general practitioners on optimal imaging tests, educational materials, and therapeutic options.
