Rocky Mountain Veterinary Ultrasound

Dr. Kim Radway DVM, Diplomat ABVP (Canine/ Feline)

Kim graduated high school from Pueblo, Colorado, and then received her Bachelor's degree in Microbiology, Magna Cum Laude, from Colorado State University in 1996. After graduating Suma Cum Laude from the Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine, she completed a medicine, surgery, and emergency medicine internship at The Veterinary Specialists of Northern Colorado in Loveland Colorado in 2001. The next 10 years were spent in general practice in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Full-time work included regular emergency duty as well as comprehensive medicine and surgery.

Beginning in 2008, she began training in ultrasound at the Academy of Veterinary Imaging in Arlington, Texas. After completing every ultrasound course offered, she entered their year-long DVM Imaging Program. This ended in February of 2011 with a certification exam. In 2008, she started a mobile ultrasound business, Rocky Mountain Veterinary Ultrasound, while also working full time in general practice. In July of 2011, Kim left general practice to pursue ultrasound full time and now serves many practices around the rocky mountain region.

From May of 2011 until May of 2013, Dr. Radway began working for New Jersey Mobile Associates one week per month. They are one of the highest volume mobile ultrasound practices in the country and were an amazing training ground in mobile ultrasound skills. Dr. Radway is now reading ultrasound exams through telemedicine for Sonopath.

In December of 2013, Dr. Radway earned the status of Diplomat of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. This is one of twenty-one veterinary specialty groups accredited by a special committee of the American Board of Veterinary Specialties, a division of the American Veterinary Medical Association, to recognize excellence in clinical practice through the certification of species-oriented specialists.

Beginning in August of 2014, Dr. Radway began also reading telemedicine ultrasound cases for Sonopath, LLC a national veterinary medicine ultrasound consulting business based out of New Jersey. This has been a new and exciting addition to her busy schedule.

Kim’s favorite activities surround spending time with her husband and two daughters. This commonly includes outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, and white water rafting. Their house is also full of pets including 2 dogs, 1 cat, a guinea pig, and two horses.
