How to submit radiographs to Cornell for evaluation
Posted 13 August 2009 - 04:48 AM
I have attached Cornell's Consultation/evaluation request form. You can print this form and bring it to your veterinary clinic to aid in submission of radiographs for evaluation. The cost for this service is listed below.
Radiograph Evaluation Fee: $50 (effective 08/12/09)

The ABCA accepts hip evaluations from OFA and Cornell of radiographs in the extended hip position ("OFA position") on dogs at least 2 years of age for notation on the pedigree. The ABCA does not accept PennHip.
Unlike OFA, Cornell returns a written report of the evaluation. In the report the radiologist discusses the hip joints AND any issues with the radiograph that may influence the hip evaluation. If the radiologist feels that the dog was not centered and this caused one hip to appear different than the other, this is reported and this is taken into consideration when they report on the hip quality. Unlike OFA, the radiologist is not reading and scoring 10s-100s of radiographs in one session; they are reading your radiograph.
