The Initiative

By combining the most technologically advanced equipment with the skilled clinical specialists at our Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, we will be able to provide better care for patients of all species and better service to our referring veterinarians – as well as to the veterinary profession. These new technologies will allow our students to experience the latest in diagnostic and therapeutic imaging and will equip them with new knowledge, leading them to becoming better veterinarians in the future.

Diagnostic Imaging & Cancer Treatment CenterWhile the imaging technology that will be available at the center will make it possible to better diagnose and treat any number of conditions in any number of animal species, the facility will also be home to a veterinary oncology medical center unlike any in the nation. In addition to being on the leading edge of surgical, chemotherapeutic, and radiation treatments, faculty are continually engaged with oncology colleagues in human facilities, such as the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, in the hopes that through collaboration, cures for many human and animal cancers can be found.

Our Objectives

  • To provide state-of-the-art imaging equipment enabling better diagnostic capabilities across multiple animal species
  • To provide treatment therapies for a greater number of conditions, including but not limited to companion animal cancers and equine lameness
  • To facilitate cutting-edge cancer research and collaboration for seeking cures to both animal and human cancers
  • To equip veterinary medical students with the most up-to-date technology and clinical skills available

Your Support

You can help us realize our objectives with your support of the Diagnostic Imaging & Cancer Treatment Center. To be able to provide the best treatment, research, and teaching services, large investments will have to be made to not only construct the facility, but to equip it with the best imaging and treatment units available.

Project Costs

Facility Construction $4.5 million
Tomotherapy Unit $3.0 million
