The EAVDI-BID Autumn meeting is regrettably not taking place this year. Instead, every Thursday evening in November the BID committee will host an online small animal interactive film reading session. These sessions are aimed at first opinion practitioners with an interest in small animal radiology and will be chaired by a renowned veterinary radiologist.
Each of the four sessions will begin at 7.30pm and last approximately 90 minutes. Each session will consist of five cases which will be available to download from the EAVDI-BID website one week before each session. Cases will consist of small animal radiographs only and delegates are encouraged to review the cases before each session. During each session delegates will be invited to present a case to the chair, which will then be discussed with the group. These sessions are intended to be interactive and delegates will actively contribute to the case discussions. The sessions are sure to stimulate some lively discussion and help improve your skills in small animal radiology
November 5th Chris Lamb, November 12th Ruth Dennis, November 19th Gawain Hammond, November 26th Mike Herrtage.
Chris Lamb graduated from the University of Cambridge and completed his residency at Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine.
He continued there as Assistant Professor before returning to England in 1990 to work in small animal referral practice in London. In 1992 he joined The Royal Veterinary College, University of London.
Chris has helped train many residents, has numerous publications covering most aspects of diagnostic imaging, has had various roles for the ACVR and ECVDI, and is an active CPD provider. He retired from The RVC as Professor of Radiology in 2019. He now works part-time for both Antech Imaging Services and North Downs Specialist Referrals.
Ruth spent several years in general practice rather a long time ago before seeing the (black and white) light and deciding to specialise in radiology.
This was in the olden days before US, CT and MRI and when EAVDI was BVRA. She worked as a radiologist at Cambridge Vet School 1984-1991 and the Animal Health Trust 1992-2020, and is now at Dick White Referrals. Outside work she enjoys gardening, riding and singing and has a secret life prancing about on stage in Gilbert and Sullivan operettas.
She and the dog are now both slightly greyer than in the photo.
Gawain Hammond qualified from Cambridge in 2000, and after a short period in practice completed a residency at Glasgow Vet School, becoming a European Diplomate in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging in 2006.
After a couple of years working at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, he returned to Glasgow where he is currently a Senior Clinician and head of the diagnostic imaging service.
Mike Herrtage graduated from the Liverpool University and is now Emeritus Professor of Small Animal Medicine at the University of Cambridge and a Life Fellow of St. Edmund's College, Cambridge. He is a former Dean of the Cambridge Veterinary School and was in charge of the small animal medicine and diagnostic imaging services at the Queen's Veterinary School Hospital.
His clinical interests include all aspects of small animal medicine and diagnostic imaging, but he has a particular interest in endocrine and metabolic disorders. He has been President of the British Veterinary Radiology Association, President of the British Small Animal Veterinary Association, President of the European Society of Veterinary Internal Medicine and President of the European Board of Veterinary Specialisation.
He is a Diplomate of both the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and of the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging and was until recently President of the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine. He was awarded the European Board of Veterinary Specialisation Award In 2018, for ‘outstanding contributions to the course of Veterinary Specialisation in Europe’.
The cases will be available for download the week before the session for the participants to review. During the sessions, the radiologists will discuss the particular points of the case, and will be available for discussion.
We hope that these sessions will be fun and useful.
These case discussions will be offered for free to both members and non-members. Simply sign up for a place.
