I am Dr. Charlie Wiley.

I graduated from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1976.
In 2010, I discovered ultrasound and dedicated my veterinary career to that one goal. With the help of the late Dr. Sherm Mathey and the radiology staff at Lackland AFB, I became skilled in ultrasound.

I met and became a student of Dr. Michelle Fabiani chief radiologist at Gulf Coast Veterinary Radiology in Houston and over the next 10 years have excelled under her direction which included intense specialized training that allowed me to become a part-time sonographer for Gulf Coast.

For the past 3 years, I have been working very closely with Dr. Victoria McEwen, chief radiologist at Lighthouse Radiology in Florida. Dr. McEwen reads all my abdominal scans and radiographs.

My training experience started about 4 years ago when I was invited to be an instructor in one of Dr. Greg Lisciandro's FAST Classes at SWVS. Since then, I have had the priviledge of training for Dr. LIsciandro at SWVS for next 3 years.
Sonosite has also hired me to provide training for new owners that have just purchased a new machine.

Most of my early echocardiography training was with Dr. Adam Kane a boarded cardiologist who was with Gulf Coast Veterinary Telemed at the time. Adam was responsible for training me to become very proficient with comprehensive echoes, including measurements, color doppler and spectral doppler using continuous wave and pulse wave.

Currently, I am sending my echoes to Coastal Veterinary Cardiology where Dr. Maggie Lamy is the chief cardiologist. Maggie is also a wonderful tutor and gives me frequent instruction on how to continue to provide the most diagnostic images.

My first machine was a Sonosite MicroMaxx, then an M-Turbo followed by an Edge II.
Taking advantage of new technology, I just purchased a new Samsung HM70 EVO system. Why did I move to Samsung?

The new technology in the HM70 will give me additional power to do larger dogs; something that was not available with my previous system due to my probe selection.

If your clinic is within 3 hours of Alice, I can travel to your office! I normally cover the area south of Victoria all the way to Brownsville. If you are interested in either a diagnostic scan or training for your clinic, please click here to fill out the email contact form to get in touch with me. I would love to hear from you!

Thanks and God Bless!

This is a great depiction of Trypanosomiasis (Chaga's Disease). Note the thin walls and dramatically reduced motion. Click here for a normal heart.

This is one of the worst cases of HW infestations that I have encountered. Note how the worms are clumped in the annulus of the tricuspid valve and the severe dilation of the RA and RV.

This is a very good PDA case. The view is the R PSAX HI view and the turbulence is from the patent PDA injecting directly into the MPA. The spectral doppler waveform of this abnormal flow is here, clearly demonstrating the regurgitant flow back through the pulmonic valve.

This case is a cardiac mass on the dorsal border of the pulmonic valve, causing significant obstruction to the outflow of the RVOT and a severe TR, seen here. The spectral doppler taken at the pulmonic valve, shows the distinctive "type iii" waveform here, clearly demonstrating the "notch" seen in severe PHT.
