Questions to Ask Your Veterinarian

If you want the best for your pet, an ACVR Radiologist or Radiation Oncologist should be involved in any specialized diagnostic imaging or radiation therapy procedure.

Important Questions To Ask Your Veterinarian:

  • Has an ACVR board certified radiologist been consulted about the best type of specialized nonivasive imaging procedure for your pet? If your pet needs radiation therapy, has an ACVR board certified radiation oncologist been consulted about the prognosis and treatment plan?
  • Does the specialized imaging study (radiology, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine) or radiation therapy treatment require advanced expertise? Is the latest specialized imaging or radiation therapy equipment available?
  • Will the specialized imaging procedure be performed and/or interpreted by an ACVR board-certified radiologist? Will the radiologist perform the image-guided biopsies if they are required? If your pet needs radiation therapy, will the treatment be performed by an ACVR board certified radiation oncologist?
