Featuring hundreds of high-quality digital images, Atlas of Normal Radiographic Anatomy and Anatomic Variants in the Dog and Cat helps you make accurate diagnoses by identifying the differences between normal and abnormal anatomy. Expert authors Donald E. Thrall and Ian D. Robertson describe a wider range of "normal," as compared to competing books, not only showing standard dogs and cats but non-standard subjects such as overweight and underweight pets plus animals with breed-specific variations. This oversized atlas provides an ideal complement to Thrall's Textbook of Veterinary Diagnostic Radiology, the leading veterinary radiography text in the U.S. Use this quick, visual reference for proper technique and interpretation of radiographic images, and you will make accurate diagnoses and achieve successful treatment outcomes.

High-quality digital images show anatomic structures with excellent contrast resolution to enable accurate diagnoses.
Radiographic images of normal or "standard" prototypical animals are supplemented by images of non-standard subjects exhibiting breed-specific differences, physiologic variants, or common congenital malformations.

Brief descriptive text and explanatory legends accompany images, putting concepts into the proper context and ensuring a more complete understanding.
Clear labeling of important anatomic structures includes cropped images to emphasize key points, and makes it quicker and easier to recognize unlabeled radiographs.
An overview of radiographic technique includes the effects of patient positioning, respiration, and exposure factors.
Radiographs of immature patients show the effect of patient age on anatomic appearance.
A wide range of "normal" animals is described, to prevent clinical under- and over-diagnosing of clinical patients.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Maureen McMichael, DVM, DACVECC (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This atlas provides detailed radiographic images of the myriad of variations that make up the normal anatomy of the dog and cat.
Purpose: The purpose of this atlas is to provide a "reference source for practicing veterinarians and students to assist them in the daunting task of interpreting clinical radiographs competently." The atlas meets these objectives nicely.
Audience: It is intended for practicing veterinarians and students.
Features: The book covers, in great detail (images), the normal radiographic anatomy of the skull, spine, limbs, thorax, and abdomen. Each segment is broken down further; for example, the abdomen is divided into liver, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, prostate gland, urethra, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and miscellaneous (uterus, adrenal glands, mesenteric lymph nodes, etc.) The book is unique in its focus on normal variants, which will be very helpful to those looking to augment their interpretation skills.
Assessment: This is an excellent addition to the veterinary literature and should have a place in every veterinary clinic. It brings new light to the wide range of variation in normal anatomy and can help practitioners avoid misinterpretation of radiographic images. There is great attention to detail and the images are very large and extremely well illustrated, making it a pleasure to read.

    A valuable resource for your office or your hand held device

    This is a great text. The radiographic images are very clear, well marked, and commented. I recently purchased this as an e-book so I can carry it with me at all times in my traveling orthopedic surgical practice.
