Description

Practical Small Animal MRI is the seminal reference for clinicians using Magnetic Resonance Imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of veterinary patients. Although MRI is used most frequently in the diagnosis of neurologic disorders, it also has significant application to other body systems. This book covers normal anatomy and specific clinical conditions of the nervous system, musculoskeletal system, abdomen, thorax, and head and neck. It also contains several chapters on disease of the brain and spine, including inflammatory, infectious, neoplastic, and vascular diseases, alongside congenital and degenerative disorders.

Index.

“The two authors, a radiologist and a neurologist, supported by two other contributors, each have over 20 years’ experience in MRI, and this is borne out by the huge amount of information and images presented.” (Veterinary Record, May 2010)

"A fascinating insight into the field; the text is well-written and extremely detailed.... invaluable as an introduction to principles of the physics of MRI and the challenges of producing diagnostic images without artifacts, and as a reference for use in clinical situations." (Veterinary Practice, April 2010)

"The extensive experience of the authors combined with a comprehensive review of the literature published on small animal MRI imaging make this the most comprehensive text on this subject.... the image quality is excellent." (VCOT, 2009)
