Collaborative Veterinary Services and Helpful Online Resources
These are helpful sites and services that Dr. Lindquist and much of the SonoPath network has known and has collaborated with for a number of years. We recommend them as resources to veterinarians and clinical sonographers alike.

www.IVUSS.org The international veterinary ultrasound society is a peer reviewed certification process for veterinary clinical sonographers and RDMS sonographers. Started in 1999 by Dr. Robert Obrien and restructured in 2011 by the current board members, this society is growing and innovating to assist, enhance, and support the use of veterinary sonography worldwide. Dr. Lindquist, founder & CEO of SonoPath.com is the current president.
Marine Mammal Radiology.com - The goals of the site are simple: to provide information on the use of diagnostic imaging modalities in marine mammals (pinnipeds, cetaceans and sea otters), to provide species-specific anatomical references as data becomes available, to provide case examples of cases where diagnostic imaging was used in marine mammal species. The website is free and no financial support has been received to develop the site. Data have been provided due to the efforts of multiple groups, and these efforts are acknowledged through the site. Dr. Sophie Dennison gained her veterinary degree from the University of Edinburgh in 2000. Sophie moved to the USA after several marine mammal medicine externships and 4yrs as a consultant for the British Divers' Marine Life Rescue, having simultaneously worked in mixed practice and emergency and critical care. In 2004 she entered The Marine Mammal Center/UC Davis Internship and Residency programs in Marine Mammal Medicine and Pathology. Following this she entered an ACVR-accredited radiology residency at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Sophie became ACVR-board certified in 2009. In 2011 she was awarded an Adjunct Professorship in Radiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and in 2012 became an RCVS Recognized Specialist in Diagnostic Imaging.
RidgewoodVet.com - The Ridgewood Veterinary Hospitals provide full service veterinary medical and surgical services in Northern New Jersey. Dr. Dean J. Cerf, hospital director, is a pioneer in laser surgery and developed the Ultrasound Guided Endoscopic Laser Ablation (UGELAB) technique for treatment of the canine bladder cancer, transitional cell carcinoma. Dr. Lindquist, of Sonopath.com, significantly enhanced the use of ultrasound in this technique to debulk this dog bladder cancer in a safe and efficacious manner in order to offer dogs a longer healthier life. Dr. Lindquist and Dr. Cerf are helping to further our understanding of the laser energy/tissue interaction properties as determined ultrasonographically. Dr. cerf is a strong proponent of combining multiple medical modalities to better serve his patients. Dr. Cerfs' integration of endoscopic, ultrasonographic, and laser technologies provides just such a medical advantage in the treatment of bladder cancer of dogs and has been used to treat adenocarcinoma of the canine nasal cavity as well as other neoplastic conditions. In addition to the use of diode laser to treat canine transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder and oral melanoma of the dog, Dr. Cerf performs nearly all other surgeries with a carbon dioxide laser which, he believes, provides for negligible bleeding and swelling, significantly less pain and improved healing. Dr. Cerf also employs the use of Class 4 Therapeutic Diode Lasers to aid in the treatment of inflammations, infections and arthritis.
