The 4th Edition of Diagnostic and Surgical Arthroscopy is, if at all possible better than the first three editions combined. This book is full of pictures depicting the finer points of arthroscopy of the equine. But pictures are not the best part; this edition also has “New Horizons” which is the inclusion of 50 narrated video clips that coincide to the procedures covered within the book. To aid the reader, there is a comprehensive listing of each procedure and the corresponding chapter that is shown in the videos at the beginning of the text for ease of locating specific videos.

While it is understood that veterinary technologists do not perform surgery, they do assist in surgical and diagnostic procedures such as arthroscopy, many times serving as an integral part of the team. For this reason, the book is one that clinical technicians working in equine practice may want to take a look at. The pictures really do give a quick thousand-word synopsis of the various types of arthroscopic examinations that technicians may see in picture form. Because the pictures reflect actual arthroscopic procedures, the visualization is one of crisp, colorful sharpness, many which attached labelling. As someone who has been a veterinary technologist for close to 20 years and a veterinary technician educator for the past eight years, I found this book answered many questions that often went unanswered while restraining an animal during a procedure. For this reason, I feel this book is a solid 5 star rating and I wholeheartedly recommend it for the library of anyone in the veterinary profession.
