Staff Doctor; Head of Diagnostic Imaging & Radiology

Dr. Fischetti is the Head of Diagnostic Imaging at the Animal Medical Center in Manhattan. A native Long Islander, Dr. Fischetti received undergraduate and veterinary degrees from Cornell University (1993-2001). He then completed an internship at the University of Pennsylvania, followed by a 3-year Diagnostic Imaging Residency/Master’s Degree from The Ohio State University. In 2005, Dr. Fischetti returned to New York as staff doctor at Animal Medical Center. Dr. Fischetti’s enthusiasm and expertise span all imaging modalities, maintaining quality control for AMC’s radiology (x-ray), ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) units. He was a member of the board of examiners for the American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR) from 2006 to 2011. He created and oversees the Animal Medical Center’s three-year residency in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging. In 2015, Dr. Fischetti became a council member for the ACVR. His research interests include the effects of image compression on diagnostic accuracy, CT angiography for abdominal vascular anomalies (portosystemic shunts and arteriovenous malformations), and cardiac MRI for heart-based tumors and pericardial effusion. In addition to his own residents, Dr. Fischetti teaches over 40 students, interns and residents of other specialties each year as they rotate through radiology. He is the imaging consultant for the Bergh Memorial Hospital at ASPCA as well as for 25 other private practices in the NYC vicinity.
