Rachel Pollard D.V.M., Ph.D.

Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Radiology
Associate Professor and Associate Researcher
Surgical & Radiological Sciences U.C. Davis

Lynelle Johnson D.V.M, Ph.D.

Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine
Professor of Medicine
U.C. Davis

For this techniques seminar, I have asked Dr Johnson to present the most current information on the diagnosis and treatment of many respiratory diseases that you are commonly asked to manage in your patients. Dr. Pollard’s discussion of the radiographic evaluation of the thorax has been designed to compliment Dr. Johnson’s lectures.  Dr. Pollard will also present a series of talks on the radiographic evaluation of common abdominal and orthopedic problems.

The main emphasis of the seminars will be to give you practical information that you can readily utilize in your practice- along with providing information on the current treatments being offered at the referral centers. The majority of the problems will be presented in 30 minutes or less to maximize the material you take with you to your practice. Drs. Johnson & Pollard  are internationally recognized experts in their fields and lecture extensively throughout the world. Both speakers work at very busy clinical practices. Because of their involvement with busy veterinary centers, these personable speakers approach clinical problems very practically.
