Since the successful completion of my training programmes as a Specialist in Radiology, I am a Senior lecturer University of Giessen/Germany, Veterinary Faculty, Department of Radiology. Next to Resident and Student training I am a frequent speaker on national and international conferences and CPD courses. I am servicing general and specialty practices as a teleradiology consultant and a number of FCI registered kennel Clubs as consultants for hip and elbow dysplasia. My research focuses on advanced cross-sectional imaging modalities, kinematics of the spine, achondroplasia, hydrocephalus, and Chiari-like malformation.


I am enthusiastic about 'small part ultrasonography' namely its application in the musculoskeletal system, peripheral nerves, neck, head, eye, and more… Small part ultrasonography proves to be an up-to-date modality daily in the cases I see whilst we’ve arrived in the age of MRI and CT. So I’m always very pleased to contribute to the literature on this important and interesting subject next to my current main research focuses in cross sectional imaging and kinematics.
