University of Cambridge Veterinary School Trust

Our current ultrasound machine for small animal examinations is over 12 years old and has unfortunately reached the point where some of the parts are no longer available to service it.

The ultrasound is the main workhorse of the diagnostic imaging department having benefitted a vast number of dogs and cats - with over 12,000 examinations having been undertaken over the last decade.

Technological advancements now mean that image quality and processing have greatly improved with a new model being able to view radiographs, MRI or CT images at the same time as the ultrasound examination is being performed, allowing our veterinary team to gain optimal diagnostic information from a case.

The machine also has ability to produce 3D and 4D constructs, which again help improve the team's diagnostic capability.

Please help us to continue to provide first class diagnostic services to many more dogs and cats in the future.

Thank you for your support,

Professor Mike Herrtage (Dean)

Our Latest News


We wanted to pass on our thanks for all your wonderful continued support despite the many challenges this year has brought. We have been able to fund several pieces of equipment for our farm, surgery, equine, small animal and imaging teams - all of which will benefit the hospital's patients and our students. Our plans to partner the University of Cambridge and the Queen's Veterinary School Hospital to jointly fund a £1.6m project to provide a new multi-species MRI machine are still going ahead - they are just a bit behind schedule! If you would like to make a donation towards Camvet's fundraising pledge of £300,000 please visit our Justgiving page - thank you.
