Overview

Use this atlas to interpret radiographic images and make accurate diagnoses! Hundreds of high-quality images clearly demonstrate normal avian anatomic and radiographic features in a wide variety of species so that you can recognize abnormal features. This book includes detailed directions for patient positioning along with radiographic exposure guidelines, ensuring that you obtain the highest quality diagnostic images.

• Complete directions for positioning during radiographic examination help you take high-quality radiographs for accurate interpretation.
• Radiographic exposure guidelines are provided for each species and radiographic view, so you can determine optimal settings and technique.
• Line drawings are superimposed on radiographic images, so you can identify anatomic structures accurately.
• Alternative imaging studies — including CT, MRI, ultrasound, GI, urogram, and other contrast media studies —allow advanced diagnostic interpretation.
• A companion CD includes all of the radiographic images in the book for digital monitor viewing.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jodi S Matheson, BS, DVM, DACVR (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: Well-labeled images provide complete, yet uncluttered, information in this atlas of avian radiology.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide examples of normal radiographic images, contrast studies, and alternative imaging studies of commonly seen avian species. Although other resources for normal avian imaging are available, this atlas provides a handy, all-in-one reference. The image quality is consistently good throughout, and the included CD of images is a bonus.
Audience: Veterinarians are the intended audience, and radiologists who only see the occasional avian patient, but are expected to be an "expert" on all species would also find it useful.
Features: Multiple species, including raptors, are covered. Plain film radiographs with multiple views and gastrointestinal contrast studies are included for each species. Computed tomography images are presented for several species. The images are well labeled without being cluttered. All the images in the book are also available in digital format on the CD. The authors point out that print reproduction of radiographs with their subtle contrast changes can be difficult. Each set of images is well labeled as to type of bird, type of study (type and amount of contrast used), radiographic projection, animal weight, gender, reproductive status, and age. Occasionally, the body condition of the bird is commented on. The only shortcoming of the book is some duplication of similar images. Four different types of cockatoos are covered.
Assessment: There are few (if any) complete avian imaging atlases. This high quality book would be an asset for both general practitioners and specialists (imaging and/or exotics).
From the Publisher
"This is a well-written, thoroughly referenced, and highly practical book for rehabilitation clinicians who work with patients with spinal cord injury. While there are other books that train rehabilitation therapists about spinal cord injury management, this book provides somewhat more of an evidence base to support the practices."
