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:
Since publication of the Second Edition, there have been major advances in other imaging techniques, including scintigraphy, ultrasonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. 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, along with suggestions for further reading.
The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
“This is the only equine radiology book that I have foundto be clinically relevant for everyday practice, both in a generalambulatory practice and in a specialty practice. The imagines andillustrations, as well as the descriptions on technique,positioning, and radiographic conditions, set this book apart fromothers on the subject. This third edition is a welcomeupdate.” - Doody's Reviews, April 2009
