Description

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. Clear explanations and a logical format simplify the principles of veterinary diagnostic radiology, including patient positioning, radiographic technique, specific anatomic features of the body part in question, methods of radiographic viewing and interpretation, and assessment and applications of alternative imaging modalities. High-quality radiographic images clarify key concepts and interpretation principles. Up-to-date coverage of the most commonly seen species in private veterinary practices and veterinary teaching hospitals includes the cat, dog, and horse. An atlas of normal radiographic anatomy in each section makes it easier to recognize abnormal radiographic findings. A discussion of radiation safety highlights measures that can protect you from harmful radiation exposure. NEW chapter on MR spinal imaging provides the latest information on the diagnosis of spinal cord disease through the use of CT and MRI.NEW information on digital imaging covers the newest advances in digital imaging.Updated coverage of procedures such as the esophagram, upper GI examination, excretory urography, and cystography helps in determining when and how these procedures are performed in today's practice.Revised chapters on basic interpretation make information easier to find, with in-depth discussions of the principles of image acquisition and interpretation, radiography, radiation safety, and basic coverage of normal variants.

Review quote

-Radiology remains one of the main diagnostic tools in veterinary practice, and image interpretation can present a significant challenge to the practitioner. Thrall's 'd104books of Veterinary Diagnostic Radiology', now in its editio, has been a major reference text on this topic for overa quarter of a century. The aim of the book is to provide instruction in canine, feline and equine radiology to undergraduate and postgraduate students...This new edition of a staple radiology textbook continues to provide excellent learning and reference material in canine, feline and equine imaging for students and qualified vets. It would be a worthwhile addition to a practice or personal library.- Vet Record, Oct 2012 "Radiology remains one of the main diagnostic tools in veterinary practice, and image interpretation can present a significant challenge to the practitioner.
