Key Features

    • 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.
