Fowler Wins First Place At ACVR

November 9th, 2016

fowler-jenniferDr. Jennifer Fowler, a diagnostic imaging resident in the OSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital, won first place for her presentation at this year’s American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR) conference. Fowler’s project tested the accuracy of the different imaging modalities for the identification of pneumonia in calves. “We did this by assessing the images in comparison to a gold standard of histopathology using calves with known clinical respiratory disease that were not responding to antibiotic therapy, as well as a small group of animals that were not exhibiting signs of respiratory disease,” she says.

Dr. Fowler is a graduate of the Atlantic Veterinary College and in her fourth year of residency. She finds her work very rewarding: “I enjoy the variety of species that I get to work with. I am neither exclusively small or large animal oriented, although I have a strong background in large animal work,” she says. “I get to provide a piece to the puzzle for diagnosing patients with confusing ailments, and mix my species knowledge in a creative way to remove knowledge gaps.”
