This is a collection of radiographs of common and uncommon bone structure, fractures, displacement, abnormalities, avulsion injuries, and carpal disorders, as well as hock and stifle lesions (including the postnatal development and differential diagnosis of osteochondrosis).

The book is sorted by location: The Foot; The Pastern Joint; The Fetlock Joint; Cannon and Splint Bones; The Carpus; The Elbow; The Shoulder; The Hock Joint; The Stifle Joint; and The Pelvis. There are more than 750 radiographs, and they are of excellent quality; some have schematic drawings to illustrate the various features, but all points are easy to visualize.

The radiographs are identified as to the breed and age of the horse, with a description of the presenting signs. I would recommend this as a reference for anyone in equine medicine.
