Effective May 1st, 2019:
For many years, the Medical Imaging Service of the Veterinary Medical Center has provided external consulting services for veterinarians submitting electronic or hard copy images. The hospital discontinued teleradiology services two years ago but we are still receiving some images for consultation. While we have appreciated the opportunity to serve practices in this role for many years, there are now many options for imaging consultation through teleradiology. These services have access to large numbers of board-certified radiologists who can provide more timely service at a more competitive cost.
Effective May 1 and for the foreseeable future, the VMC will no longer be providing external imaging consults, allowing us to focus our Imaging Service faculty on the more immediate service, teaching and research needs of the hospital and college. If you have questions regarding the diagnosis or care of a patient, we ask that you please refer that patient to the appropriate VMC service. Any images submitted will be reviewed by our clinicians and referred to our radiologists, if necessary, with the results of any further diagnostic imaging communicated with you.
We thank you for your continued support of the VMC and hope these changes will actually provide improved care and service for your patients
