Veterinary Radiography

A Workbook for Students


  • Suzanne Easton, MSc, BSc, Senior Lecturer, University of the West of England, UK

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Radiography can seem a daunting subject to tackle but this book provides an exciting and unique approach to revising a difficult subject. Each chapter introduces its topic with a list of learning objectives clearly pinpointing the essential information. A variety of exercises and activities take the student through a comprehensive revision programme and this book is an excellent complement to the veterinary nursing student's own study programme.
