Buda radiologist suspended over public safety concerns


NEW YORK, NY – DECEMBER 10: Radiologist Anthony Fischetti ispects CT scans from a sick cat at the Animal Medical Center on December 10, 2012 in New York City. The non-profit Animal Medical Center, established in 1910, has 80 veterinarians in 17 specialty services that treat up to 40,000 animal visits annually. Clients bring in their pets from around the country and world to the teaching hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side for specialized high tech treatment. The American Pet Products Association estimates that Americans would spend more than $50 billion on their pets in 2012, $14 billion of that in veterinary care alone.

BUDA, Texas (KXAN) — On Tuesday, a Texas Board of Medical Radiologic Technology disciplinary panel temporarily suspended a Buda radiologist after determining that he posed a threat to public welfare.

According the the Texas Medical Board, Christian Cesar Cantu was found to be out of compliance with a 2017 legal order, due to arrests and violation of probation. The order required him to enter into a residential treatment center and serve 10 days in Burnet County Jail.

A hearing will be held as soon as Cantu is available to attend, the board says, and the suspension will remain in place until the board takes further action.
