Diagnostic Imaging

Dr. Ryan King is a veterinary diagnostic imaging specialist who focuses on radiology, ultrasound, CT and MRI for small animals. He also consults on equine and wildlife cases and works at Tufts VETS, a specialty and emergency veterinary hospital in Walpole, MA.

Dr. King grew up in Saint John, New Brunswick and completed his undergraduate degree at University of Prince Edward Island. He completed his internship at the Cummings School then a diagnostic imaging residency before joining the faculty. Because it combines his interests in working with animals and in technology, Dr.King says veterinary radiology seemed like a perfect fit.

At the Cummings School, Dr. King teaches radiology courses in the second year and in the fourth-year clinical rotations. He also mentors students at Tufts VETS for additional radiology and ultrasound training.

The great thing about radiology is the opportunity to see everyone else's interesting cases, says Dr. King,Almost every case that comes through the hospital either gets radiographs, ultrasound, CT or MRI. Dr. King says he also enjoys working with a dedicated staff, and enjoys the opportunity to discuss challenging cases with colleagues from many different disciplines.
