Techniques of Veterinary Radiography

The final diagnosis of a lesion on a radiograph is the end product of a series of events comprising the radiological process.  This volume takes the veterinarian through the steps necessary to obtain a quality radiograph that facilitates a diagnosis. The changes in equipment production with the advent of solid-state construction, integrated circuit timers, digital read out control panels, and silicon controlled rectifiers have taken the art of radiography a long way since this book was first published in 1974.

This book remains directed toward those who are studying diagnostic radiology and those who are taking radiograph examinations in a clinical setting. Students, technicians, and veterinarians will benefit from this book. The manual is written so it can serve as the basic text for the student in a radiography course and as the primary reference for the radiography technician.

Photos and drawings throughout direct the radiology technician in the optimal placement of the animal. The process is discussed in detail - from placing the animal to developing a quality film. Examples of poor-quality films and explanations of how they occurred will help the technician obtain better films in the future. For those in practice, the loose-leaf format is most valuable when placed near the radiograph machine where it is readily available during radiographic examinations.
