Welcome to the Veterinary Imaging Club at the Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences! The Veterinary Imaging Club is committed to advancing the knowledge, education and awareness of veterinary diagnostic imaging among veterinarians, students and the public.
The Veterinary Imaging Club seeks to provide members with significant learning opportunities in this challenging yet rewarding area of veterinary medicine. Imaging modalities such as radiology, fluoroscopy, ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and nuclear scintigraphy have an extensive capacity to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases in veterinary patients. Proficiency in veterinary diagnostic imaging is an essential part of small animal, large animal and mixed animal medicine, which is why every veterinary student should consider joining the Veterinary Imaging Club!
Veterinary Imaging Club is one of the newest clubs at Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, with our beginning in 2011-2012. As a member of Veterinary Imaging Club, students will get the opportunity to participate in many activities throughout the school year including:
- Monthly club meetings, where our focus is to have exceptional speakers discuss exciting and relevant topics in the field of veterinary diagnostic imaging
- Hands-on learning opportunities throughout the year for students to practice performing imaging-related technical skills, including ultrasound examination, under the direct supervision and guidance of veterinarians and trained technicians
Please consider attending the next Veterinary Imaging Club meeting, we’d love to see you there! Check back soon for updated information on specific monthly club meeting dates and topics, as well as how to sign up for ultrasound wet labs and other activities for the 2015-2016 school year!
Membership dues are $20/year and can be paid to Treasurer, Tony Blanco.
