Veterinary Imaging is the new specialization program in Veterinary Medicine and Zootechnics, which aims to discover diseases through technology. Some of the diseases that can be discovered through this specialty are: cancer, broken bones, blocked arteries, among others.
The program offered by the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Zootechnics (MVZ) is pioneering because for the first time, students in the area of veterinary medicine in Colombia will be able to learn X-ray, ultrasound, magnetic resonance and tomography techniques using their own equipment.
The field of action of the student is quite wide since it has the possibility of articulating the specialization with master's programs of the same faculty. In addition, it will venture into telemedicine, with specialties such as telecare, teleintervention and telesurgery.
"This postgraduate program is aimed at veterinarians and zootechnical veterinarians, both large and small animal species, productive species, wildlife and exotics, " said Santiago Henao Villegas, head of postgraduate courses at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine CES.
Animals that can be benefited by imaging are from small to large species, wildlife such as turtles, parrots, and iguanas are also included.
The specialization consists of three academic semesters with an emphasis on radiology, ultrasound, tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging.
