The interpretation of radiographs, and the technique involved in getting good radiographs, is one of the most challenging aspects of veterinary medicine.  This small notebook (with a ring-binder, so it will lie flat), is a great step toward improving the clinician's odds of success. The book is not a complete primer on radiographs, but the many illustrations, some with transparent overlays and guides, will help veterinarians improve their radiographic interpretation.

There are matter-of-fact discussions on various topics - such as film artifacts, limitations of radiographs, public health safety, applications of thoracic radiology, etc.

Because the field is narrowed to just thoracic radiology, more in-depth discussion is possible. The topics are broken down into:

  • Radiology
  • Normal Radiographic Anatomy
  • Radiology of the Heart
  • Vessels
  • Lungs
  • Pleural Space Disease
  • Mediastinum, Diaphragm, Body Wall and Ribs
  • Appendices

This will be a handy reference for the dog and cat clinician.

This is another of the Made Easy series published by Teton NewMedia, Jackson, WY (2000).

ISBN: 41893441156.
