Advanced imaging: Basics principles and indications for using CT & MRI
Advanced imaging is becoming more accessible to veterinarians, with either on-site or regional outpatient access. The use of these tests can greatly elevate the clinical practice and care provided to veterinary patients. The basic principles of how CT and MRI are used to produce diagnostic images will be reviewed. We will review general indications for using each modality. Limitations of these diagnostics will also be discussed.

After completing his residency, David became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Radiology and returned to the University of Florida as a faculty member in diagnostic imaging. At the University of Florida, David trained veterinary students, interns, and residents in the principles of small and large animal diagnostic imaging, as well as exotic, zoological, and aquatic animal imaging. Subsequently, David moved to Murdoch University, Western Australia, as a Senior Lecturer, where he served as Head of Diagnostic Imaging.
