Biographical details

Dr Makara earned his veterinary degree at the University of La Plata, Argentina. In January 2005, he began a radiology internship with Ross University, School of Veterinary Medicine, under the guidance and direction of Dr. Joe Morgan where a significant part of his responsibilities included reading radiographs and performing ultrasound examinations. He then moved to the University of Zurich in Switzerland where he completed a residency program in diagnostic imaging and passed his certification exams for the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging in March 2010. Following this he was promoted to Assistant Professor at the University of Zurich where he was responsible for each of the diagnostic modalities including diagnostic radiology, ultrasound, and CT in both small and large animals.

Dr Makara has also completed externships at the University of Bern and University of Wisconsin in order to gain additional skills in MRI and Nuclear Medicine. Since January 2011 he has served as an Associate Professor at St. George┬┐s University. His research interests have centred around computed tomography angiography, and he has completed research projects in thoracic computed tomography angiography contrast medium injection technique and use in diagnosis of infections with Angiostrongylus vasorum in dogs.
