ACVR Annual Scientific Conference 2017

 The American College of Veterinary Radiology’s (ACVR) Annual Scientific Conference will be held in Phoenix this year.  Running from Oct. 18-21 at the Sheraton Grand Phoenix, the conference will bring together specialists in veterinary radiology – both diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology – to discuss, present and learn the newest research in their field.  While a very specialized field, the ACVR has 600 active diplomates, 280 society only members and 120 resident members-in-training. Then there’s the specialized societies sponsored by the ACVR – combined the Veterinary Ultrasound Society (VUS), Society of Veterinary Nuclear Medicine (SVNM), CT/MRI Society and the Large Animal Diagnostic Imaging Society (LADIS) have 1,400 members.  So it will be a busy few days in Phoniex. And it’ll be warm!  The average October temperature in Phoenix is from 86 to 92 degrees Fahrenheit this time of year.  But what could be hotter than veterinary radiology?  Answer: NOTHING!
