Abby Caine


European and RCVS-Recognised Specialist in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging

Honorary Associate Professor, University of Nottingham

Abby graduated from Cambridge Veterinary School in 2001. During five years in a busy small animal practice, she developed an interest in radiology and ultrasound, and gained the RCVS Certificate in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging. She returned to Cambridge in 2006 to undertake a Residency in Diagnostic Imaging, and gained the European Diploma in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging in 2009. She is an active member of the British and Irish Division of the European Association of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging  and a member of the Board of the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging. Abby is interested in all aspects of imaging, in particular MRI, trauma imaging and muscuoloskeletal ultrasound. She has published articles and book chapters in the field, and enjoys teaching students and general practitioners.
