Carlo Anselmi DVM DipECVDI MRCVS Head of Service - Diagnostic Imaging

Carlo graduated in 2021 from the University of Padova, Italy.

He subsequently completed two rotating internships in referral small animal and equine hospitals before undertaking a diagnostic imaging internship in a busy small animal referral hospital in Italy.

He completed his diagnostic imaging residency at Barcelona University, achieving the European Diploma in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging in 2019.

Carlo has worked in both private referral hospitals and academia across Europe (Italy, Netherlands and Spain), as well in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital of the Kansas State University Veterinary College (U.S.A). He then moved to the UK working for four years in a busy small animal referral hospital and also teaching radiology at Veterinary School of Nottingham University.

He regularly presents at several congresses, conferences and academic institutions. He is also the Secretary of the Italian Society of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging (SVIDI) and member of the Credentials Committee of the European College of Diagnostic Imaging (ECVDI).

Carlo enjoys all aspects and modalities of radiology, with particular interest in cardiorespiratory system, abdominal ultrasound, exotics, neurology, and oncology.

Carlo particularly enjoys continuous learning and teaching: "Radiology is so complementary to other disciplines that I discover and teach something new every day."

In his spare time, Carlo enjoys cycling and gardening, and spending time with his four and two legged family and friends.
