Review quote

This is a concise and comprehensive look at veterinary CT imaging. Although many journal articles are available on CT physics and the appearance of commonly imaged diseases, this book is an excellent single-source reference for students, residents, practitioners, and even specialists, who will find it a useful resource. (Doddy's, 20 April 2012)
