Thanks to all our members who attended the EAVDI-BID Autumn Meeting 2023!
On the Thursday before the meeting, we had a very successful Ultrasound CPD Day with 17 new members receiving practical ultrasound teaching from Pete Mantis.
Friday and Saturday saw our traditional Autumn meeting held at Tewinbury in Welwyn, with over 70 attendees. There was a great mix of radiological cases, high quality research and informative lectures across the two days, rounded off with a couple of memorable meals out for a chance to catch up with old friends.
Demand for the meeting was very high - we're sorry to those who missed out on a place, but we hope to see you all soon!
The next meetup is in Manchester on Wednesday 20th March for our Pre-BSAVA Satellite Meeting. Keep an eye on your emails and our LinkedIn and Facebook pages for more details soon.

The EAVDI BID committee invite you to take part in the development and growth of the British and Irish division of the European Association of Diagnostic Imaging.
Our organisation is keen to enroll new members for better understanding of the needs and practices of our profession. We hope to see our membership swell and we welcome new members with technical and practical skills as well as new veterinary practitioners within other disciplines to learn how diagnostic imaging supports a wide range of needs.BECOME A MEMBER

Alastair Nelson Award
Alastair Nelson was a highly respected equine veterinary surgeon who was highly active in the field of equine diagnostic imaging and who was a pioneer of standing equine computed tomography. Following his sad loss at the age of 46 in 2009, EAVDI-BID have set up a travel award in his honour, to promote the field of equine diagnostic imaging. The first year that submission is accepted is 2012.
The AwardA sum of up to £150 will be available once each year to support a veterinary surgeon working at a British or Irish veterinary practice (including Vet School, Referral Hospital, etc) who is attending a scientific congress to present a clinical research abstract in the field of equine diagnostic imaging. The money is to contribute to travel and registration expenses incurred by attending the conference.
The abstract (max 400 words), along with an accompanying letter, should be submitted to the Andrew Parry (
The successful candidates will be listed on the EAVDI-BID Website, along with the title and year of their presentation. The successful candidate will also be expected to present their abstract at the EAVDI-BID Autumn Meeting that year.
If there are any queries, please contact the EAVDI (BID) chairman.
EAVDI-BID HistoryThe Association has it roots in the British Veterinary Radiology Association (BVRA), which was founded in the 1960s to promote the study and development of veterinary radiology. In 1991, this group became the European Veterinary Radiology Association (EVRA) in recognition of the increasing continental involvement, and at the first annual general meeting in Switzerland in 1992, the name was changed to the European Association of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging (EAVDI). It is now a truly international association, and encompasses all aspects of diagnostic imaging, including radiography, ultrasonography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and nuclear medicine. Membership of EAVDI is open to members of the veterinary and medical professions as well as other workers who are interested in these subjects. The Association embraces the professional interests of all its members. Members are kept informed of news, meetings and other items of interest by regular newsletters.
The British and irish Division of EAVDI usually meets twice a year at locations in the UK. These meetings provide both CPD material (e.g. review papers from Diplomates in imaging), and presentation of original research. Traditionally, day meetings are held in the Pre-BSAVA Congress satellite session, and there is also a weekend meeting in the Autumn. As well as providing a high quality scientific programme, the weekend meeting is noted as a very enjoyable social event.As the membership list includes most of the specialists in veterinary diagnostic imaging in Europe, one of EAVDI's most important roles is to act as a forum where their knowledge and experience can be shared and discussed.
EAVDI also welcomes all veterinary surgeons that intend to sit certificate level examinations in diagnostic imaging (advanced practitioner certification). All candidates for these examinations are advised to join EAVDI-BID.
A Congress of the entire European Association is held every year.
Recent venues have included Switzerland, Sardinia, Berlin, Cambridge and Stockholm. These have been distinguished by the excellence of the presentations, and give the opportunity to meet and enjoy the company of colleagues from all over Europe in interesting surroundings. All members of EAVDI are automatically members of the International Veterinary Radiology Association (IVRA), which also organises an international conference every three years.
European Association of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging (British and Irish Division)
The British and Irish Division is a Division of the European Association of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging, recognised under the Constitutional changes of the European Association of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging made in 1999. The Division is a non-profit making organisation and does not pursue commercial interests.
