Summary

User-friendly and comprehensive, this essential resource covers all aspects of canine, feline, and equine diagnostic radiology and interpretation. It features relevant coverage of the physics of radiology, CT, and MRI, as well as valuable information on patient positioning and management, radiographic technique and safety measures, normal and abnormal anatomy, radiographic viewing and interpretation, and alternative imaging modalities. This edition features more than 500 additional images, a new chapter on the principles of digital imaging, and expanded coverage of brain and spinal cord imaging. Features comprehensive, logically organized coverage of the latest advances in imaging techniques and interpretation for the dog, cat, and horse. A body systems approach presents information in a logical progression, covering skeletal versus soft tissue structures, normal anatomy, general radiographic changes, and the most common abnormalities affecting each particular system. Discussion of the physics of radiology, CT, and MRI offers a better understanding of the radiographic process. An atlas of normal radiographic anatomy of the dog and horse offers a basis for comparison to assist in recognizing abnormal findings. Information on radiation safety highlights safety measures associated with ionizing radiation. A self-assessment section at the end of each chapter evaluates understanding of key concepts and clinical applications. High-quality radiographic images, illustrations, tables, and charts throughout clarify important concepts and interpretative principles. A new chapter on Digital Images and Digital Radiographic Image Capture. Updated and expanded coverage of brain and spinal cord imaging, including CT and MRI. More than 500 additional radiographic images in this new edition that clarify key concepts. An Evolve website that provides online access to online access to key points for each chapters, 13 quizzes for self-evaluation, an atlas of normal radiographic anatomy for the dog and horse, 50 case studies with images radiographic and video images, 20 video clips and audio files, a Systematic Checklist for Evaluating Abdominal Radiographs, and a Paradigm for Radiographic Interpretation.
