About the Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences
The NC State College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) has achieved national recognition in research, teaching and clinical excellence, and the Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences plays critical roles in all of these areas. The Molecular Biomedical Sciences (MBS) department bridges basic and clinical research and is home to 45 multi-disciplinary faculty, as well as staff, post-docs, graduate students and house officers. Disciplines represented in MBS include basic science fields (cell biology, physiology, gross anatomy, developmental and reproductive biology, environmental science and toxicology, genomics, neurobiology, and regenerative medicine), clinical specialties (anesthesiology, pharmacology, nutrition, and diagnostic imaging), and pedagogy. The MBS department trains both veterinary medical students and graduate students interested in research-based careers. The department’s research mission focuses on the discovery of new knowledge relevant to animal and human disease and applying these findings to enhancing health and well-being.
About Diagnostic Imaging at the NC State Veterinary Hospital
Diagnostic imaging in the NC State Veterinary Hospital is extremely well equipped with four Canon digital radiographic systems (two small animal, two equine), a digital RF room, a biplane cath lab, two Canon Aplio i700 and one Canon Aplio i500 ultrasound machines for small animal imaging, a Mylab 70 XVG for equine orthopedics and assorted portable equine ultrasound machines, an equine/small animal nuclear medicine suite using Mirage software, two Siemens CT machines, (16 slice for equine and 64 slice for small animal), and a 3.0T Siemens Skyra MRI suite configured for small animal and equine MR imaging. A fully integrated web based Radiology Information System (Empiric Systems/Fuji) and PACS (Merge) allows for easy report generation and image distribution throughout the College. The RIS and PACS are readily accessible offsite and via iOS devices.
There are six other full-time radiologists, seven radiology residents, and ten technologists and support staff. The radiology department is a congenial team-oriented group which is excited about the prospects of furthering the development of imaging at NCSU in collaboration with the talents and ideas of a new faculty member. The NC State Veterinary Hospital is a wonderful workplace with enthusiastic students, technologists and other faculty specialists who work together to provide excellent veterinary medical care and to advance the knowledge base.
