|AAZV 21st Zoo & Wildlife Pathology Workshop|
DEAR COLLEAGUES: PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT
AND RESPOND TO THIS CALL FOR CASES
AAZV 22nd Annual
This all day
workshop will be held on Sunday, September 27, 2015 from
8:00 AM to 5:00 PM in Portland, OR. in conjunction
with the annual meeting of the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians.
The theme of this year’s AAZV/CL Davis Foundation Pathology workshop will focus on collaborations between anatomic pathology and diagnostic imaging (radiographs, CAT scan, MRI, ultrasound, etc.) in the morning with an afternoon session of cool cases from a wide variety of species. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Tony Pease, DVM, Diplomate ACVR from Michigan State University. Dr. Pease has extensive experience in all imaging modalities and has collaborated with pathologists on numerous exotic and domestic cases, as well as developing streamlined diagnostic panels involving both imaging and pathology. He will present “Lions, Tigers, and Turtles- How Imaging Has Expanded Our Horizons”. His interactive presentation will discuss the use of both disciplines in diagnostics and understanding diseases processes. Cases from pathologists from around the world will be enlisted to illustrate these diagnostic collaborations. The afternoon session will include examples of the most interesting cases pathologists and clinicians have seen over the last year.
you wish to present a case, please email Dalen Agnew (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a brief
description of the case by July 6, 2015. Those applicants with chosen cases will be notified by

will be given for cases involving the interaction between diagnostic imaging and anatomic pathologists and team presentations (a radiologist or clinician and an anatomic pathologist) are encouraged!
