Equine Diagnostic Imaging

Recognized Veterinary Specialty in Equine Diagnostic Imaging

The purpose of this video is to address the frequently asked questions of the ACVR membership regarding the proposal for a subspecialty in equine diagnostic imaging and to further elucidate what the relationship would be between the proposed recognized veterinary specialty in equine diagnostic imaging and the ACVR. (Video created by: Dr. Myra Barrett, Chair, Organizing Committee and Joe Vasos, Videographer). 

Provisional Recognition

At its February 26, 2019 meeting, the American Board of Veterinary Specialties (ABVS) met to review the petition from Equine Diagnostic Imaging to seek provisional recognition as a Recognized Veterinary Specialty (RVS) within the American College of Veterinary Radiology. The ABVS voted to grant provisional recognition to Equine Diagnostic Imaging.

ACVR-EDI Certifying Examination

Applications for the equine diagnostic imaging specialty examination are now being accepted. Requirements to sit the examination are board certification by the American College of Veterinary Radiology and a strong interest in equine imaging. The examination will consist of 40 cases covering all facets of equine diagnostic imaging and will be held over two days in the autumn of 2019. The exact date and location of the test are to be determined.

Candidates can submit a letter of intent stating their qualifications and any questions regarding the examination process to Meghann Lustgarten at [email protected].
