The University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Imaging Group is excited to offer a comprehensive, rapid teleradiology consulting service to VHA members.  Think of our service as adding an in-house university imaging department to your hospital.  We are one of a few university based teleradiology services in the country. We offer:
    • Monday through Saturday service with the exception of the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
    • 24-hour or less turnaround time on all submissions Monday through Saturday.  Typically cases submitted by 4:00pm CST are read the same day.  Cases submitted after 4:00pm CST on Saturday are typically read on Monday.
    • Complete written report emailed and/or faxed to your clinic for each case.  Email reports can be sent to a generic clinic email or an individual doctor’s email account.
    • All cases are read by one of the board certified radiologists at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine.
    • Billing through the VHA resulting in a volume discount for VHA members.

 

Price:

$40 Per Consult (A 10% savings for VHA members!)

 
Turnaround: 24-Hour or less turnaround time on all submissions Monday through Friday.

Testimonials

"In March 2013, we switched from Wells Fargo to US Bank. We were astounded by the savings. For 2013, our year-to-date savings on credit card processing is over $20,000. In addition, the customer service at US Bank has been phenomenal. I highly recommend their services. Thank you, VHA, for making this excellent recommendation to the members."

–Dr. Jennifer Blair, St. Francis Animal & Bird Hospital

"VHA not only provides an excellent pricing structure, they also offer us a wider variety of available products so we can buy closer-to-need. They are our ‘go-to’ people on anything we need."

–Dr. Ken Ambrose & Dr. Julia Berndt, Minnesota Valley Pet Hospital
