Megan E. Bounds, DVM, DACVR

Dr. Bounds attended the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, for both undergraduate and veterinary school. While in veterinary school, she developed a strong enthusiasm for diagnostic imaging. After completing a small animal rotating internship in medicine, surgery and emergency at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Bounds spent time in private practice in Delaware and on her days off continued to focus on diagnostic imaging while teaching radiology with the local veterinary technician training program. She also served as her county representative and then vice-president for the state veterinary medical association.

Dr. Bounds enjoyed her time in private practice and hoped to eventually work as a radiologist in a private practice specialty hospital. She devoted her time to continuing her training and completed a one-year radiology specialty internship and three-year radiology residency at MedVet Medical & Cancer Center for Pets, in Columbus, Ohio, one of only two private practices offering an American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR) approved standard residency training program in the country (the other being Animal Medical Center in New York City). One of the many advantages of residency training, and especially in private practice, is the high caseload with MedVet seeing over 18,000 total diagnostic imaging studies annually. This includes over 14,000 small animal radiology studies, 3000 ultrasound studies, 350 computed tomography studies and 600 magnetic resonance studies, every year.

Dr. Bounds is a board certified radiologist and joined The LifeCentre in July, 2015, to open and lead Veterinary Radiology Associates. She has presented various diagnostic imaging lectures locally and nationally, to technicians and veterinarians including interns, residents, general practitioners and specialists. She is a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR), member of the ACVR- CT/MRI Society, ACVR-Ultrasound Society, American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), and state and local veterinary medical associations. Outside of work, Dr. Bounds enjoys jogging, hiking and all things outdoors. She especially enjoys time volunteering and specifically with the high schoolers at her parish. Dr. Bounds is also an avid Baltimore Orioles and Tennessee Volunteers fan and has a specific weakness for Frenchies.
