Our Objectives

We are currently petitioning through The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) to form a new Academy of specialty in Diagnostic Imaging. Successful completion of this petition would place our organization one step closer to providing a process by which credentialed veterinary technicians may become recognized as a Veterinary Technician Specialist (VTS) in the field of Diagnostic Imaging (DI).


Specialty Recognition

The importance of receiving specialty recognition is important not only to our veterinary patients, but to the veterinary industry we serve. Upon recognition, the members of the Academy shall be known as a "Veterinary Technician Specialist in Diagnostic Imaging" (VTS-DI).


September 14, 2018:

Now that our petition to recognize Diagnostic Imaging as a Veterinary Technician Specialty has been officially recognized by NAVTA, our committee is currently working hard to getting all content and information made available to our potential members!

We are working on getting this content onto our website but please be patient, as this information will be made available to the public on January 1, 2019. Until then, you may see some new features on here, but you'll be able to access these new features and content once its all released to go live on January 1st.

We apprieciate your continued patience as we go through this transition.

Check back on our website's News page here or on our Facebook page as we complete the specialty recognition process!

Thank you all for your continued support!
