Veterinary radiology encompasses a variety of diagnostic imaging techniques, including the following five core areas: all aspects of Roentgen diagnosis; diagnostic ultrasound; computed tomography (CT); magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); and diagnostic nuclear medicine. Additional objectives include: integration of understanding of equine disease processes and sports and discipline related injuries/abnormalities with imaging analysis, promotion of research and development in the field of equine imaging by board-certified equine radiologists, promotion of the highest level of acquisition and interpretation of equine diagnostic imaging and provide high quality imaging support to equine practitioners and clients.

Successful completion of the residency will provide the trainee with opportunities to pursue a career in private practice, both within a clinic setting or as an independent consultant and/or to enter academia for clinical service, teaching and research of equine diagnostic imaging. The scope of the program will allow for residents to be able to integrate an understanding of equine disease processes and treatment of the disease with the imaging findings to incorporate as a valuable member of the equine veterinary team.

A standard program which meets all requirements in the Equine Diagnostic Imagine Residency Program Essentials is a minimum of 3 years of postdoctoral medical education. ACVR does not warrant that successful completion of an ACVR approved residency training program will lead to passage of the ACVR Radiology (Written & Oral) Board Certification Examination and/or achievement of ACVR Diplomate status.
