Product description

Radiography of the Dog and Cat: Guide to Making and Interpreting Radiographs offers a comprehensive guide to producing high-quality radiographs and evaluating radiographic findings. Equally useful as a quick reference or for more in-depth information on specific diseases and disorders, the book is logically organized into sections describing how to make high-quality radiographs, normal radiographic anatomy, and interpretation of radiographic abnormalities. It is packed with checklists for systematic evaluation, numerous figures and line drawings, and exhaustive lists of differential diagnoses, resulting in an especially practical guide for the radiographic procedures performed in everyday practice. Written in a streamlined, easy-to-read style, the book offers a simple and fresh approach to radiography of the dog and cat, correlating physics, physiology, and pathology. Coverage includes patient positioning, contrast radiography, normal and abnormal radiographic findings, and differential diagnoses as they pertain to musculoskeletal, thoracic, and abdominal structures. Radiography of the Dog and Cat: Guide to Making and Interpreting Radiographs is a one-stop reference for improving the quality and diagnostic yield of radiographs in your clinical practice.

Review quote

"Radiography of the Dog and Cat: Guide to Making and Interpreting Radiographsis a concise, easy-to-read, quick reference for small animal veterinary clinics and will be a useful supplementary text for veterinary students." ( Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association , 15 June 2014) "This is a handy, easy to reference text that will be useful in the x-ray suite of the hospital, reached for again and again for clinicians, veterinary technicians, and anyone else working within the suite." ( The VIN Book Reviews , 1 June 2014) "Radiography of the Dog and Cat: Guide to Making and Interpreting Radiographs is a fine guide for any professional looking for detailed specifics for dog and cat care, and provides a key to evaluating radiographic findings. From describing how to make high-quality radiographs and interpretations of abnormalities to figures, line drawings, and lists of diagnoses, this is written as both a quick reference and as a comprehensive new approach to radiography which blends physiology, pathology and physics. From making and interpreting quality radiographs to evaluation checklists and different radiography systems, this is packed with the latest technical details and comes with a companion website featuring review questions, positioning guide, and more. With its many specific details, Radiography of the Dog and Cat is a 'must have' reference for any veterinary collection and for libraries appealing to technicians." ( Midwest Book Review , 1 December 2013) "It may be used as either a quick reference on the job, or for more in-depth information on specific disorders, and is arranged by sections describing the basics of radiographic anatomy and interpretation. Checklists for evaluation, charts, line drawings and visuals, and discussions of both analog and digital radiography systems provide concrete techniques for improving radiographs and diagnosis from them, making this a 'must' reference for any vet student or practicing technician." ( Midwest Book Reviews , 1 October 2013) "I reckon that if you adopt the recommended and very logical approach, you will become a real champion in radiography interpretation. Are you ready for the challenge?." ( Tomorrow's vets , 1 September 2013)
