Description

A good basic knowledge of radiological anatomy is essential for both the specialising and non-specialising veterinary audience.

This comprehensive and general practice orientated reference book which provides detailed radiographic guidance on the normal clinical anatomy of the dog and cat. In addition to numerous projections of plain and contrast studies, this atlas includes detailed observations of the normal range of variations seen in the juvenile animal, differences between breeds and descriptions of the range of anatomical variations commonly encountered in veterinary practice.

The clinical utility of the book has been greatly enhanced by the use of line drawings corresponding to the relevant radiographs and schematic drawings of those structures not normally visible in plain films.

The authors, both with extensive teaching experience in postgraduate veterinary radiology, describe procedures and techniques routinely available in general veterinary practice. Monitored for anatomical accuracy throughout, this atlas provides a single volume reference for the general practitioner, undergraduate or postgraduate veterinary surgeon.
