This text provides a basic source on diagnostic ultrasound. It pilots readers through physical principles, scanning techniques and image interpretation. Small animal ultrasound is emphasized, but all clinically significant aspects of equine ultrasound are discussed. Sonograms are included to aid interpretation and ensure easy, accurate diagnosis. The book's coverage includes showing readers how to recognize artifacts, how to use ultrasound effectively during a biopsy, and how to accurately interpret cardiac, abdominal, ocular and cervical soft-tissue studies in small animals. One section addresses the latest on echocardiography, reproductive management and the scanning of tendons and ligaments in horses. In addition, advanced material enables practitioners to fully understand and implement diagnostic ultrasound.
