Key Features

  • Atlas-sized radiographs allow you to easily visualize the injury or indication of disease.
  • Comparison radiographs display a normal image with an abnormal image to highlight differences and help you identify abnormalities in practice.
  • “Telescopic” images provide close-up views of larger radiographs to help you identify salient points visible in the radiograph.
  • Content tailored to each species highlights the common injuries and diseases for each avian and exotic species.
  • Discussions of multiple modalities including ultrasound, MRI, and CT provide all the information you need for diagnostic imaging in one resource.
