"My name is Sean Rangel and I am the Lead Technician for VetImage. I have been with VetImage for over six years. Throughout the six years with VetImage, I have been trained by the best in veterinary ultrasound. Which has lead to being a mobile ultrasonographer for VetImage. I am also able to help in teaching fourth year veterinary students basic ultrasound. I’ve also been involved in training future sonographers for VetImage.
Being given the opportunity to help Dr. Kari and VetImage at this level has been a great life experience. Veterinary ultrasound is a very useful tool for the many veterinarians that use our services. I am very fortunate to be part of VetImage and help provide these services. The results of using ultrasound are very rewarding."
