Biography:
Dr.Rademacher graduated from the Justus-Liebig-University of Giessen in Germany in 2000 to receive her DVM degree. She received her Dr. med. vet. from the Vetsuisse University of Bern, Switzerland, for her work titled "Doppler sonography of the medial arterial blood supply to the coxofemoral joints of 36 medium to large breed dogs and its relationship with radiographic signs of joint disease". This was followed by an Internship in a small animal referral clinic in Tenniken in Switzerland, before she started her residency training in diagnostic imaging at the Vetsuisse University of Zurich in Switzerland. She is a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging since 2007 and the American College of Veterinary Radiology since 2010. Since 2007, she works at the School of Veterinary Medicine, Louisiana State University and is currently an Associate Professor of Diagnostic Imaging.
