Membership in ACVR's special interest societies is open to anyone with an interest in the goals of each society.

Veterinarians or non-veterinarians with an interest in Ultrasound, CT/MRI, Nuclear Medicine, or Large Animal Diagnostic Imaging can join one or more of the ACVR Societies. Please see ACVR Membership Categories for a definition of the types of ACVR membership. Each Society maintains an email listserver for discussion of topics related to its particular specialty. You must be a member of the Society to belong to its list.


Veterinary Imaging Textbooks

See Amazon Best Sellers - These resources cover the latest veterinary imaging techniques and interpretation principles to help you maintain your proficiency in diagnostic imaging. You can improve your skills in radiology, ultrasonography, CT, and MRI. For Nuclear Medicine, the Textbook of Veterinary Nuclear Medicine can provide an instructional aid to those learning the subject as well as to serve as a reference text for those performing routine nuclear medicine studies.



Lower The Dose

The ACVR is partnering with IDEXX and the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) in Lower the Dose, a new initiative to help raise awareness of radiation safety best practices. There is a need for more radiation safety education to make people aware of the As Low as Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) principle to help create a safer work space. Visit the new Lower the Dose website for timely and relevant radiation resources, news and safety information, and state guidelines.
