The book is divided into sections for each type of pet so that relevant information and visual references can be rapidly consulted. Every section begins with the anatomical illustration of the relevant part of the body with respect to each of the individual diagnostic procedures. In the second part of the book, the most common pathological conditions are depicted according to organ system and discussed comparatively. This comparative presentation enables a quick and correct diagnosis in conjunction with using the most suitable diagnostic techniques. All radiographic, sonographic, CT and MRI images are clearly labelled. Containing over 1,400 illustrations, this atlas is an unrivalled resource for veterinarians in pratice and training dealing with small animals, birds and reptiles.

Amazing book! A must have for every exotic practitioner.
Excellent picture quality, refers to everything important, very easy to consult.

Review quote

finding specific information is quite easy, meaning that it is a useful book to dip into while performing a work-up. Images are generally of high quality... provides well-described, basic and accessible information about radiography, ultrasonography, CT and MRI in commonly seen species... any practice regularly seeing exotic species and keen to increase the diagnostic work-up they perform would find this a useful reference and teaching guide... a good book to dip into as cases present in practice and double-check techniques, cross-reference your own images or even find out whether some things are possible in exotic species... I suspect many experienced exotic practitioners might also enjoy having this manual in their practice library. -Gabrielle J. Drake, Veterinary Record, 12-Feb-2011 This amazing book... has handy hints and detailed information on the equipment required, safety, positioning and projections, indications for imaging, possible clinical signs and normal variations... Useful tables and information boxes are scattered throughout... excellent, well-labelled images... I thoroughly loved this book, particularly the detailed and specific information and clear explanations of anatomy and positioning... The layout, table of contents, index and colour tabs made locating items of interests easy... I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone in the veterinary or animal care profession who treats birds, pocket pets or reptiles, or anyone with an interest in these increasingly popular pets. -M Welsh, Australian Veterinary Journal, 01-Oct-2011
