He is the vice-president (president elect) of the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging and an examiner for the ECVDI diploma. He is a reviewer for several peer-reviewed publications and regularly speaks at national and international meetings.

Andrew’s research interests include, amongst other things, computed tomography angiography and in particular, morphology of portosystemic shunts. He has numerous publications in the field of diagnostic imaging in peer-reviewed journals, and is the author of several book chapters within the field.

Andrew feels very privileged to work at Willows Referral Service with a group of very talented and highly motivated specialists in multiple disciplines, as well as first opinion veterinary surgeons, nurses and support staff. He actively pursues continuing professional development interests and is active in all fields of veterinary diagnostic imaging, from radiology through to advanced cross sectional imaging techniques.
