An Atlas of Radiology of the Traumatized Dog and Cat
The second edition of this Atlas describes and explains the uses of diagnostic radiology and provides detailed instructions on how best to apply this technique to the diagnosis of traumatized dogs and cats, including a range of emergency cases. The main focus is the descriptive presentation of clinical cases, with three main chapters covering thoracic, abdominal and musculoskeletal trauma, including emergency cases. Four smaller chapters cover soft tissue injury, gunshot wounds, cases of abuse and poisoning. The first part of each chapter reviews the basics of the particular radiological techniques necessary for that section, radiographic characteristics, indications for examination, and diagnoses. The introduction is followed by numerous illustrated case studies. Each case is discussed in detail relative to the clinical history, the findings on examination, radiographic procedures, a description of the radiographic features/patterns determined on evaluation of the radiographs, a specific or differential diagnosis, and the treatment or management received by the patient. Follow-up-radiographic studies demonstrate the healing process in selected cases.
Veterinary practitioners will find ample material in the Atlas which will help to reinforce or improve their clinical or technical skills.
