Overview

Jean-Marie Denoix is the world's leading equine musculoskeletal system anatomist and has become one of the foremost equine diagnostic ultrasonographers. There is, therefore, nobody better to compile a reference atlas of the clinical anatomy of the foot, pastern and fetlock, correlated with images obtained by radiography, diagnostic ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging. Advanced imaging techniques require in-depth knowledge of anatomy for accurate interpretation and especially when using magnetic resonance imaging this must be a 3-dimensional concept of anatomy.

The image quality is extraordinarily high and the multiple views of each area of the distal limb provide an extremely detailed evaluation. Each part opens with characteristically superb anatomical drawing by the author. Each spread of pages deals with a single dissection viewed by means of colour photographs, labelled black and white equivalents, plus x-rays, ultrasound and MRI scans as required. The book is designed for maximum clarity using a generous page size. This atlas is essential for anybody involved in detailed anatomical study, complex lameness evaluation or advanced imaging techniques.

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

Editorial Reviews

Gordon J. Baker
This unique, anatomical text illustrates the morphology of the equine distal limb. The reference images include dissections, anatomic sections, radiographic, ultrasonographic, and MRI illustrations. 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. 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. 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. 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.
