The Association

The Australasian Association of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging was created in 1995 to promote diagnostic imaging to veterinary practitioners. The associations constitution is registered with  the Department of Fair Trading [New South Wales state government]. AAVDI is a not for profit organisation, with all moneys raised from its activities being devoted to furthering the aims of the association

The objectives of AAVDI are:

  • to promote the highest possible standards of practice in veterinary diagnostic imaging
  • to promote the study and development of veterinary radiography, radiology, ultrasonography, radiation oncology, and other veterinary applications of diagnostic imaging or radiobiology
  • to maintain an awareness of safety measures commensurate with the proper use of ionising radiation
  • to encourage publication in the sphere of veterinary diagnostic imaging
  • to represent veterinary diagnostic imaging within other veterinary organisations
  • to provide an organisation for those who have an interest in veterinary diagnostic imaging, and to promote social interaction and good fellowship amongst members of the organisation
The Committee

The affairs of AAVDI are administered by an elected committee, with all positions filled in an honorary capacity. An Association Administrator was employed in 2001 to provide administrative assistance on a part time basis to provide managerial and book keeping assistance. The committee [see Office Bearers] is elected at the annual meeting of the association.

Member benefits and Services

The association regularly provides workshops and continuing education meetings. We employ authorative individuals to present these programs, sourcing leading veterinarians from Australia and further afield. Internationally recognised speakers at our meetings have included Drs Victoria Johnson [UK], Christine Gibbs [England], Johann Lang [Switzerland], Kathy Spaulding [USA] and Robert Wrigley [USA]. We are fortunate that there is a great depth of talented Australasian speakers to provide the bulk of our content. Additional membership benefits include IVRA membership, access to teaching videotapes and the results of collaborative work such as standardised methods of examining dogs and cats for PCKD [see Services]. We maintain a page of electronic links to sites on the WWW that are of interest to our memberships [see Links]

The website also has a good list of imaging cases which are updated regularly. Test your knowledge.
