What is a Veterinary Radiologist?

The American College of Veterinary Radiologists definition:

An American College of Veterinary Radiolology (ACVR) Board Certified Veterinary Radiologist diagnoses diseases by obtaining and interpreting medical images. Some images are obtained by using x-rays or radioactive substances, others by means of sound waves or the body's natural magnetism. The imaging modalities include radiology, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear medicine imaging. A radiologist correlates medical image findings with other examinations and tests, recommends further examinations or treatments, and consults with the referring veterinarian (the primary care veterinarian who sends patients to them for imaging and diagnosis or sends medical images for interpretation).
