The Equine Distal Limb: An Atlas of Clinical Anatomy and Comparative Imaging / Edition 1

Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on BN.com
 

Overview

The author of this comprehensive anatomy atlas is the world's leading anatomist of the equine musculoskeletal system and has become one of the foremost equine diagnostic ultrasonographers. He is therefore uniquely placed to offer this reference atlas of the clinical anatomy of the foot, pastern and fetlock, correlated with radiographic images, diagnostic ultrasonography, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Advanced imaging techniques require in-depth knowledge of anatomy for accurate interpretation; this is especially true when using MRI, where a three-dimensional concept of anatomy is needed. The image quality of this invaluable reference text is extraordinarily high, and the multiple views of each area provide a highly detailed evaluation.

Each section of the book opens with a superb full-color anatomic drawing by the author. Each page spread that follows deals with a single dissection shown in color photographs, with labeled black and white equivalents, as well as further color close-up photographs, X-rays, ultrasound and MRI scans as required. The generous page size allows the dissections to be shown in clear detail. This atlas is essential for anyone involved in detailed anatomic study, the evaluation of complex lameness or advanced imaging techniques.

The book contains both black-and-white and color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: 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.
