Overview

This text offers essential coverage of normal radiographic anatomy of small mammal species including rabbit, ferret, guinea pig, chinchilla, hamster, mouse, and rat. Historically used as laboratory animals, these "pocket pets" now have increasingly higher companion animal value and owners are more commonly seeking medical care for them. This resource is designed to help veterinarians meet increasing client demand for services. It provides an understanding of normal anatomic and radiographic features that will help clinicians more easily identify abnormal features to reach an accurate diagnosis.

• This is the only book of its kind for these species, designed to help practitioners expand the range of services offered for exotic and "pocket" pets.
• Provides complete directions for positioning each species during radiographic examination to obtain the highest quality images for accurate interpretation.
• Includes alternative imaging modalities such as CT, MRI, and ultrasound, for advanced diagnostic interpretation.
• Features radiographic exposure guidelines for each species and each radiographic view, for determining optimal settings and technique.
• Helpful line drawings are superimposed on radiographic images for accurate identification of anatomic structures.
• Covers contrast media studies that can enhance detail for radiographic interpretation in species where soft tissue density detail is poor.
