A bit about us...
Ben Sullivan - Clinical Applications Team Manager
"I joined IMV imaging in 2014 and I am helping you by heading up our clinical team of three vets and a radiographer, leading them in the provision of clinical support to you, our customers. I help teach our practical scanning courses, and work across departments to ensure that we are creating clinical content, and developing new products, that support our customers with their diagnostic imaging needs. As a mixed-practice vet for five years, and an equine vet for a further two years, I worked in small animal general practice and large animal reproduction work, leaning heavily on imaging as a diagnostic tool, with a particular interest in ultrasonography. Having a keen interest in cardiac imaging, I also provide clinical applications support to customers on our more advanced ultrasound scanners from GE.”
Kat Evans - Applications Specialist
“I joined IMV 10 years ago and I am here to help by providing applications support and training for CT and MRI systems as well as advanced training on radiography systems., I was the lead radiographer working for Vet MRI the original mobile veterinary MRI service. I then worked at Fitzpatrick referrals for 2 years setting up the CT and MRI service there before moving to my current role. I love sharing my knowledge, and helping people get the best from whatever imaging system they are using. When not busy at work I compete in dog obedience, Rally and Scent work with my staffi x- Freddie.”
Laura Quiney - Clinical Manager
“I am a Clinical Manager for IMV imaging, and I am here to help through the creation of clinical resources for our customers as well as teaching on our popular ultrasound CPD courses. After graduating from the University of Bristol in 2012, I completed an internship in orthopaedics and diagnostic imaging before working as an ambulatory equine vet. I went on to receive further training from specialists, whilst overseeing the Equine Centre’s diagnostic imaging department of the Animal Health Trust for several years. I support our customers by creating useful clinical resources such as webinars, posters, how-to guides and videos as well as articles and case studies in order to help them get the most from their imaging equipment. In my spare time I enjoy long walks with my dog, ‘Goose’, and baking cakes.”
Sam Mauchlen - Clinical Manager
“I joined IMV imaging in 2019 and I am here to help through developing and delivering clinical learning materials for our customers, as well as organising and teaching our CPD courses. I After graduating from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in 2006, I worked in a mixed practice where I developed my interest in diagnostic imaging, particularly ultrasound. Aiding others in the veterinary industry to better understand diagnostic imaging is very rewarding and I enjoy supporting them to gain more information from their ultrasound exams through creating content such as articles, case studies and webinars. In my spare time I enjoy walking, swimming and the occasional run. When I am not doing those things, I may be found chilling out with my cat or to improve my ability as a guitarist.”
Kirstin Dinham - Veterinary Applications Specialist - South Africa
“I am the veterinary applications specialist for IMV Imaging South Africa and joined in late 2018 after five years in small animal and exotic practice. I provide applications and sales support to our customers as well as teaching on our small animal ultrasound courses, coordinating CPD and creating clinical content. You will find me at all our local training courses as well as in your practices demo-ing our systems (aka playing with expensive equipment!), and getting you comfortable and confident with your new machines. My main interest lie in ultrasonography and I am studying further in the subject through the University of Liverpool. I am passionate about helping to make ultrasound more accessible to general practitioners, and ‘demystifying’ both the technical and clinical side of this amazing modality. Outside of work I enjoy being active outdoors, and exploring everything our beautiful country has to offer.”
