Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Gordon J. Baker, BVSc, PhD, MRCVS,Dip ACVS(University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This unique, anatomical text illustrates the morphology of the equine distal limb. The reference images include dissections, anatomic sections, radiographic, ultrasonographic, and MRI illustrations.
Purpose: The objective is to provide clinicians with the anatomical basis required for the main steps in evaluating diseases causing lameness in the horse. These are worthy objective and I think the book meets them.
Audience: This book is written for, and is of particular value to, students, residents, and practitioners - particularly those in equine practice, where lameness evaluation is of prime importance. The author is a recognized authority using the techniques illustrated in the book.
Features: The text presents the distal limb as three sections, the foot, the pastern, and the fetlock. Each section has four subsections, giving double paged images of dissections, sagittal and parasagittal, transverse, and frontal sections. The quality of all illustrations is of the highest order and, to my examination, the text is free of errors.
Assessment: This 390 page text is a very high-quality production. It contains a glossary of English terms and Latin equivalents and a clear and complete index. This book is unique in its content and style and quality of presentation. It may be recommended for reference and ownership without reservation.
