Continued European Role for Willows’ Head of Imaging

27 October 2020

We’re delighted that our Head of Imaging here at Willows Veterinary Centre and Referrals Service is set to continue his involvement on the board of the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging (ECVDI).

Andrew Parry, an RCVS and European Specialist in Diagnostic Imaging, who earlier this year became a Fellow of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, will take on the post of Past President with the ECVDI.

Andrew, who has previously been president and vice-president of the college, explained: “The office of Past President is designed for me to be able to pass on my experience to the new President, and I am very much looking forward to the role.

“It is important for me to be able to help my successor and ensure a smooth transition, especially as a large number of reforms were undertaken in my tenure as President, to make Specialist Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging more accessible.

“Having been an officer of the ECVDI for the past five years, I am pleased and privileged to take on this new challenge.”

Andrew graduated from the University of Cambridge in 1999, completed the RCVS Certificate in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging in 2005, added an ECVDI diploma in 2010 and became an RCVS Recognised Specialist in 2012.

He joined us here at Willows in 2010. After taking a number of posts with the ECVDI, including as an examiner for the diploma, he became vice-president of the college in 2016.

The ECVDI’s stated mission is to ensure members are equipped to provide the highest quality of veterinary care and advanced knowledge in veterinary diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology, and to encourage them to share that knowledge.
