Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Chantal A Imbs, DVM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is a revised and updated version of a textbook on imaging in veterinary medicine. The editor and 43 authors contributed to this 832-page, hardcover book. The previous edition was published in 2002.
Purpose: The primary objective is to serve as an instructional aid for students of imaging to help them interpret both basic and challenging images. Comprehensive, written by experts, this essential resource provides much-needed information for anyone who needs insight into veterinary diagnostic radiology.
Audience: Designed to present a user-friendly approach to diagnostic radiology, this book is written for students, but would also be useful to veterinarians, interns, residents, or technicians interested in augmenting their knowledge of imaging techniques and interpretation.
Features: The book covers principles of imaging techniques and interpretation of the different body parts of canine, feline, and equine species. This fifth edition also includes access to a web portal hosting self-assessment quizzes, case studies, an atlas, movies, and lists of key points of each chapter, among other resources. Moreover, new chapters on the basic principles of digital imaging and MR imaging of brain disease in small animals are included.
Assessment: This is a helpful and valuable source of information on radiography technique, normal and abnormal anatomy, and alternative imaging modalities. The new chapters and the deployment of the normal anatomical atlas throughout the text are improvements over the previous edition.
