Overview

Clinical Radiology of the Horse is the only text book, dedicated to the horse, which provides a comprehensive overview of radiography and radiology of all areas of the horse. It provides a thorough guide both to the techniques used to obtain radiographs of the horse, and to radiographic interpretation. With almost 600 superb annotated radiographs and more than 120 line diagrams, the book combines the best features of a high quality atlas and those of a detailed text book.

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:

  • Significantly enlarged to include a chapter on digital radiography.
  • Includes descriptions of several new radiographic projections.
  • Many of the images have been replaced by digital images, and there are also many new illustrations.
  • Expanded information on processing and image quality.
  • Updated to include new information, knowledge gained from continued clinical experience and the most relevant references from recent literature.
  • CD included with the book presenting all the radiographic images in electronic format.

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.

Editorial Reviews

Jennifer Podolski
This second edition equine radiology book includes 13 chapters, three appendixes, and an index. The first edition was published in 1993. The purpose is to fulfill the need for a textbook that specifically addresses equine radiography and radiology and that would be of benefit for both general practitioners and veterinary specialists. There are few, if any, other books published in this field, so the objectives are worthy. The editors are very successful in meeting these objectives. According to the editors, this book is written for anyone who radiographs horses, and I agree. This book is excellent for general equine practitioners, equine and imaging specialists, veterinary residents, and students. The editors are credible authorities, either equine or radiology specialists or both. Techniques for equine radiography are described with many illustrations included to explain the positioning of the horse and necessary equipment. Radiographic interpretation is discussed including normal and abnormal findings in every region of the horse. There are excellent illustrations, descriptions, and line drawings for these findings. A list of physeal closure times, an exposure guide and description of image quality, and a glossary of terms are included in the appendixes. References for further reading are listed after each chapter. This is an excellent book for this field. The second edition includes more information on specific lesions, and has more illustrations and drawings. Many of the illustrations that were in the previous edition have been improved in the second.

A thorough guide to the techniques used to obtain radiographs of the horse and their interpretation. Presents the normal radiographic anatomy of the immature and mature horse, with normal variations, incidental findings, and significant abnormalities, with remarks on clinical signs, treatment and prognosis, and full details of radiographic techniques. Each chapter also discusses abnormalities which are clinically silent and unlikely to cause a future problem. The volume begins with a chapter addressing general principles, followed by eleven chapters addressing anatomical areas from the food to the urinary system. A final section addresses miscellaneous techniques. Includes some 500 annotated radiographs and many interpretive line drawings. Updated from 1993, this new edition is significantly enlarged to include new information, including recent relevant research and literature references, as well as providing many additional illustrations.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Elysia Schaefer, DVM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This update of a book on equine radiology covers computed and digital radiography and discusses normal and abnormal radiographic conditions of each body part, as well as technique and positioning for appropriate radiographs. In addition, a CD-ROM included with this edition contains all images from the book for better visualization. The previous edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide up-to-date information on radiographic techniques, images, and conditions that have changed or improved over the years that is clinically relevant for both general equine practitioners and equine surgeons. This book does just that.
Audience: Students with an interest in radiology, as well as general equine practitioners, residents, and surgeons, are the intended audience. The authors are specialists in equine radiology, lameness, and surgery.
Features: All body areas of radiographic importance in horses are covered in detail, with a description of normal radiographic anatomy, followed by normal radiographic variations and abnormal conditions. Each chapter details significant radiographic findings, appropriate positioning for each view, and measurements that may be taken to evaluate any radiographic abnormalities. A majority of the images from the previous edition have been updated with digital images, giving a much more detailed radiograph. The CD-ROM also allows better viewing of the images. The book also includes a glossary of terms, several appendixes, and a list of references for further information on other diagnostic modalities available to the practitioner.
Assessment: 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 images and illustrations, as well as the descriptions of technique, positioning, and radiographic conditions, set this book apart from others on the subject. This third edition is a welcome update with newer images and information on computed and digital radiography, which is becoming widely used throughout private and academic practices.
From the Publisher
"The third edition of Clinical Radiology of the Horse has been substantially updated and expanded from the second edition but it still remains true to the format that has made it so valued by equine practitioners and specialists. Although this edition remains focused on equine radiography and radiology, alternative imaging techniques that are increasingly available to practitioners are among the new information and updated literature references. The strengths of this book include the abundance of illustrations as well as the incorporation of the clinical experience of the authors in the discussion of disease conditions. The excellent line drawings remain from the previous editions, but many of the original radiographic illustrations have been replaced by digital images; this results in increased image quality in the text. A CD-ROM with images and illustrations from the book is included. The CD-ROM is searchable by words included in the image captions nad can be used as a quick reference or for client education... An exceptional reference that should be in the library of every equine practice." - Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, June 2009

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
