Our radiology service is dedicated to the relief of animal suffering by the accurate identification and staging of disease. A multitude of diagnostic services such as ultrasonography, myelography, urinary imaging (excretory urography, cystography, urethrography, retrograde vaginourethrography), gastrointestetinal contrast studies (grastrography, upper GI, barium enema), thoracic and orthopedic special positioning images, computed tomography, and MRI scans are offered. All disciplines of diagnostic imaging are intended to add insight into diseases of endocrine, gastrointestinal, urinary, oncological, neurological, respiratory, and infectious origin.

Dr. Hager is a board certified veterinary radiologist, and has a unique background in medical and radiologic training in that he is both a veterinarian and a physician. He received his veterinary degree in 1980 from Purdue University, completed a small animal medicine and surgery internship at Louisiana State University and then underwent a three year veterinary radiology residency at the University of California, Davis, that culminated in board certification as a veterinary radiologist in 1984. He joined the faculty at the University of Florida as an Assistant Professor for four years before establishing a radiology practice in San Diego in 1988.
Due to an intense interest in comparative medicine and advanced imaging procedures, Dr. Hager attended medical school at the University of California, Davis and graduated in 1994, while maintaining a radiology practice in San Diego. As part of his human medical training, he completed a transitional internship at Mercy Hospital in San Diego and two years of radiology residency at the University of California, San Diego.
In San Diego, he established and later sold, a stand alone veterinary diagnostic imaging center. The center provided nuclear medicine, ultrasound, CT and MR imaging along with hyperthyroid cat treatment. Recently, Dr Hager’s practice has evolved into emphasizing teleradiology consultations with a special interest in MR and CT imaging. Dr. Hager has over forty articles on veterinary radiology topics published in various veterinary journals and has spoken both nationally and internationally on veterinary radiology subjects.
Dr. Hager continues his interest in comparative human and veterinary radiology while striving to obtain the highest quality of diagnostic imaging for his veterinary patients and practice. Having been a cat lover his entire career, Dr. Hager continues to own and manage the Animal Imaging & Treatment Center (www.animalimaging.org) in Las Vegas, NV, a hyperthyroid cat treatment center.
