Jaime E. Sage, DVM, MS, DACVR is the owner of MRI Vets, which was founded by Pat Gavin in 2001. She received her veterinary training at Texas A&M, and completed her residency at Ohio State. Formerly with VDIC and IDEXX laboratories from 2005 to 2014, she has specialized in MRI. Dr. Sage has spent the past ten years working to advance the state of the art in veterinary MRI, by partnering with MD radiologists in clinical and research practice. Believing that specialization in MRI will lead to improved patient care outcomes, she currently trains MRI students in a two-week course, and a one-year fellowship format. Dr. Sage resides in Georgetown, Texas, with too many animals to count.
Patrick R. Gavin, DVM, PhD, DACVR/RO, left us on June 26th, 2019 and will be greatly missed. He was Professor Emeritus in Veterinary Radiology, Washington State University, and mentor to scores of veterinarians. Dr. Gavin was the founder of MRI Vets, and had over 30 years of experience with MRI as a diagnostic modality for animals. Since the inception of MRI Vets in 2002, he reviewed over 100,000 cases and continued to review more than 200 per month, even after retirement in 2015. Dr. Gavin was the author of several veterinary texts, including Practical Small Animal MRI, published by Wiley Press. He resided in Sandpoint, Idaho.
