This is another great book in the Made Easy Series. Spiral bound so it can be laid flat for hands-free reading, the book is divided into eight sections: Introduction and Technique; Normal Radiographic Anatomy of the Abdomen; Peritoneal Cavity; Intra-Abdominal Masses; Alimentary Tract; Urinary Tract; Reproductive Tract, and Anomalies.

Speaking as one who has a hard time with radiographs, the illustrations (more than 250) and explanatory diagrams are excellent and educational. The introduction is worth reading once a week, as it describes many of the reasons why radiographs do not turn out as clear as they could. Illustrations with accompanying text help the reader-viewer to define some of the fine points in the radiographs.

The use of contrast material, and positioning of the animal, are a large and important part of this book's focus. The discussions of fluid shifts and contrast changes on different views makes this book a valuable aid.
