Diagnostic Radiology and Ultrasonography of the Dog and Cat E Book Book Review:

Interpret diagnostic images accurately with Diagnostic Radiology and Ultrasonography of the Dog and Cat, 5th Edition. Written by veterinary experts J. Kevin Kealy, Hester McAllister, and John P. Graham, this concise guide covers the principles of diagnostic radiology and ultransonography and includes clear, complete instruction in image interpretation. It illustrates the normal anatomy of body systems, and then uses numbered points to describe radiologic signs of abnormalities. It also includes descriptions of the ultrasonographic appearance of many conditions in dogs and cats. Updated with the latest on digital imaging, CT, MR, and nuclear medicine, and showing how to avoid common errors in interpretation, this book is exactly what you need to refine your diagnostic and treatment planning skills! Hundreds of detailed radiographs and ultrasonograms clearly illustrate principles, aid comprehension, and help you accurately interpret your own films. The normal anatomy and appearance for each body system is included so you can identify deviations from normal, such as traumatic and pathologic changes. Coverage of the most common disorders associated with each body system help you interpret common and uncommon problems. Coverage of radiographic principles and procedures includes density, contrast, detail, and technique, so you can produce the high-quality films necessary for accurate diagnosis. Clinical signs help you arrive at a clinical diagnosis. An emphasis on developing a standardized approach to viewing radiographs and ultrasonograms ensures that you do not overlook elements of the image that may affect proper diagnosis. Complete coverage of diagnostic imaging of small animals includes all modalities and echocardiography, all in a comprehensive, single-source reference. Discussions of ultrasound-guided biopsy technique help you perform one of the most useful, minimally invasive diagnostic procedures. Single chapters cover all aspects of specific body compartments and systems for a logical organization and easy cross-referencing. Coverage of different imaging modalities for individual diseases/disorders is closely integrated in the text and allows easier comprehension. A consistent style, terminology, and content results from the fact that all chapters are written by the same authors.

BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Musculoskeletal Imaging Book Review:

This, the second edition of the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Musculoskeletal Imaging, has been extensively updated reflecting the dramatic changes that have taken place in radiography over the past 10 years. With the increasing availability of digital radiography in general veterinary practice and a greater accessibility to cross-sectional imaging techniques the editors have included five new chapters covering the basics of the different imaging modalities with particular reference to their use in musculoskeletal imaging. Comparisons are drawn between the different techniques and a generous use of illustrations and images bring an example driven clarity and understanding to the written word. As in the previous edition, the manual is structured along anatomical lines and the updated chapters have all been expanded to include more ultrasound as well as CT, MRI and scintigraphy. The practical nature of the manual makes it ideal for use in general practice as well as being a rich source of information for students and newly qualified veterinary surgeons. However, the depth of information supplied by an international panel of authors makes the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Musculoskeletal Imaging second edition a useful reference for orthopaedic surgeons and specialist radiologists.

Clinical Radiology of Exotic Companion Mammals Book Review:

Radiology is a routine diagnostic procedure in all fields of clinical veterinary practice, and exotic medicine is no exception. Besides an increasing interest and concurrent demand for a higher level of care of these species, very little is reported in the scientific literature about normal radiographic patterns, and radiographic abnormalities are generally limited to case reports. Clinical Radiology of Exotic Companion Mammals is designed to fill this gap. It provides a practical resource for veterinarians wishing to add these special species to their clinical practice, and a ready reference for those already including those species among their caseload. Clearly labeled normal images will aid anyone interested in comparative radiographic anatomy, and the techniques section will help overcome difficulties related to the smaller size of many exotic companion mammals. Features of the book include: wide range of exotic mammal species beyond ferrets, rabbits, and rodents, including species such as marsupials, hedgehogs and potbellied pigs a review of the basic principles of radiology, equipment, radiologic techniques and patient positioning helpful for optimizing exotic companion mammal radiography an extensive review of both normal and pathologic radiographic patterns. Some of the latter are accompanied by clinical or surgical images to aid the practitioner in familiarization with a wide range of both common and uncommon lesions.
