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.

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 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.
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.
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.
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.
