What’s Your Diagnosis?
AAVDI and IVRA
IVRA stands for the International Veterinary Radiology Association – an organization that encourages and promotes all forms of scientific endeavors and research involving veterinary radiology, as well as disbursing knowledge of veterinary radiology throughout the world, representing the radiology discipline in other veterinary organizations and encouraging training in veterinary radiology. Membership in the IVRA is open to all veterinarians and others who have a special interest in Veterinary Radiology; membership of AAVDI automatically makes you a member of IVRA. There is a strong sense of friendship and fellowship amongst IVRA members – more information and imaging resources can be found by clicking on the link above.
IVRA holds an international meeting once every three years – these meetings bring together veterinary radiologists and others who have an interest in veterinary diagnostic imaging from all over the world. The location varies on each occasion; participation from developing countries is strongly encouraged through travel scholarships.
The 2023 IVRA EVDI Joint Conference will be held in University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland from June 18th to June 23rd 2023. Registrations are now open – see the conference website for more details: http://www.ivraevdi2023.com/
