The large and small animal imaging group comprises Virginie Baberet, Chris Warren-Smith and Kate Bradley who between them cover a broad range of research interests.
Virginie’s research interests are focused on imaging techniques for the abdomen of small animals using Computed Tomography and ultrasonography. She also participates in other clinical research projects that are ongoing collaborations between the imaging and surgery departments (MRI of the brain of dogs and cats, abdominal and cardiac ultrasonographic parameters in healthy rabbits).
Kate Bradley’s major responsibility within the imaging group is teaching of veterinary and nursing undergraduate students. Although time for research is limited, she is keen to collaborate in both retrospective and prospective clinical research involving diagnostic imaging modalities. Kate has held funding from Petsavers to investigate the use of MRI to image canine stifles and has collaborated on several projects where imaging has played a major role, including aspects of polycystic kidney disease, elbow dysplasia and feline nasal disease.
Chris Warren-Smith has only recently joined the group and is currently developing his research interests.
