The normal radiographic anatomy of immature and mature horses is presented, with normal variations, incidental findings and details of significant abnormalities. Remarks on clinical prognosis and treatment are also included. The emphasis throughout is on practical tips, common pitfalls, and the techniques used to obtain the best radiographs of specific areas and conditions.
Changes for the third edition:
There have been major advances in other imaging techniques, including scintigraphy, ultrasonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging since the second edition. This third edition still focuses on radiography and radiology, but acknowledges the limitations of radiography in some circumstances. In these situations reference is made to other imaging techniques which may be appropriate, with suggestions for further reading.
The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
“This is the only equine radiology book that I have found to be clinically relevant for everyday practice, both in a general ambulatory practice and in a specialty practice. The imagines and illustrations, as well as the descriptions on technique, positioning, and radiographic conditions, set this book apart from others on the subject. This third edition is a welcome update.” - Doody's Reviews, April 2009
"[This book] illustrates the continuing importance of radiology in equine veterinary medicine―notwithstanding the impact of other imaging techniques on our understanding. This book is an invaluable aid to obtaining and interpreting radiographic images of horses and should on the shelf of―and read by―all veterinary surgeons attempting to do so." - Veterinary Times, May 2009
