Resources and Tools

 

How to send images for consultation:

  • Follow the instructions for new clients.
  • Click Submit a Ticket and select Request for New Client Registration.
  • Once registered the technical support staff will contact you to establish an electronic
    connection for submission of digital studies (radiographs, ultrasound, CT, MRI).

If you have any questions at all or experience any difficulties during this process please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Tidwell

Suggestions for improving radiographic image quality:

  • Collimate to area of primary concern.
  • Avoid whole body radiographs
  • Measure the thickness of body parts.
  • Ensure proper positioning to avoid rotation/obliquity.
  • Make exposure of thoracic radiographs at peak inspiration.
  • Utilize proper algorithms for area of interest, i.e. thorax, abdomen, extremity.
  • Use sedation or anesthesia when needed.

What Our Clients Say…

"I have been using Dr. Tidwell’s radiology consult service for over 3 years. I couldn’t be more satisfied. The consults are fast and his vast knowledge and expertise makes me feel at ease. If I have any questions, I can call him for clarification. I send every radiograph I take for consultation so that I am never in doubt and I don’t miss any lesions. My clients appreciate that I care so much that I use a board certified radiologist to review the radiographs. Using Dr. Tidwell’s radiology consult service is like having a radiologist on staff." — Gary Zinderman, DVM
We here at Brawley Animal Hospital are so happy to have Dr. Scott Tidwell in our area! Not only does it increase revenue for our business by allowing us to do procedures we would otherwise have to refer out, it also helps us diagnose and treat our own patients using a higher level of medicine. It is much more convenient for our clients to get these procedures done at our hospital rather than having to be referred to a different hospital with different doctors. Dr. Scott Tidwell not only has helped us diagnose many diseases we wouldn’t have been able to without his service, he also is a great person to work with!! We highly recommend him!! -Dr. Angie Finkes & Dr. Summer Shivers — Brawley Animal Hospital-Mooresville, NC
