Clinical Radiology of Exotic Companion Mammals


Author: Vittorio Capello,Angela M. Lennox
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 1118710460
Category: Medical
Page: 528
View: 6473
Radiology is a routine diagnostic procedure in all fields of clinical veterinary practice, and exotic medicine is no exception. Besides an increasing interest and concurrent demand for a higher level of care of these species, very little is reported in the scientific literature about normal radiographic patterns, and radiographic abnormalities are generally limited to case reports. Clinical Radiology of Exotic Companion Mammals is designed to fill this gap. It provides a practical resource for veterinarians wishing to add these special species to their clinical practice, and a ready reference for those already including those species among their caseload. Clearly labeled normal images will aid anyone interested in comparative radiographic anatomy, and the techniques section will help overcome difficulties related to the smaller size of many exotic companion mammals. Features of the book include: wide range of exotic mammal species beyond ferrets, rabbits, and rodents, including species such as marsupials, hedgehogs and potbellied pigs a review of the basic principles of radiology, equipment, radiologic techniques and patient positioning helpful for optimizing exotic companion mammal radiography an extensive review of both normal and pathologic radiographic patterns. Some of the latter are accompanied by clinical or surgical images to aid the practitioner in familiarization with a wide range of both common and uncommon lesions.

BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Musculoskeletal Imaging


Author: Frances J. Barr,Robert M. Kirberger
Publisher: BSAVA

Category: Medical
Page: 220
View: 7670
The BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Musculoskeletal Imaging is a brand new addition to the range of BSAVA Manuals and, together with its forthcoming sister manuals on Thoracic and Abdominal Imaging, builds on the classic BSAVA Manual of Small Animal Diagnostic Imaging. The manual is extremely practical to use, being structured along anatomical lines, with chapters considering individual joints, the long bones, the skull and the spine. In addition general chapters on soft tissues, bones and joints cover topics common to all regions of the musculoskeletal system. Each chapter is structured in the same way, allowing rapid familiarization and information retrieval: * Radiographic technique. * Normal anatomy. * Contrast studies. * Alternative imaging techniques. * Abnormal radiological findings. Radiology is the mainstay of musculoskeletal imaging but in recent years advanced imaging modalities, such as CT, MRI and ultrasonography, have become increasingly used in practice. Although the Manual is not designed to cover these aspects in-depth, the indications for use if these alternative imaging techniques are covered and appropriate examples given. The Manual is illustrated throughout - the concept of clear line diagrams has been retained from the BSAVA Manual of Small Animal Diagnostic Imaging, but a wide range of radiographs have been added to complement the text. The chapters have been written by a panel of internationally renowned authors, both specialist imagers and orthopaedic surgeons. The Manual therefore is not only designed for the veterinary undergraduate or general practitioner, either with or without a special interest in diagnostic imaging, but also for the orthopaedic surgeon as well as the specialist radiologist.
