Equip yourself to make accurate diagnoses and achieve successful
treatment outcomes with this highly visual comprehensive atlas.
Featuring a substantial number of new high contrast images, Atlas of Normal Radiographic Anatomy and Anatomic Variants in the Dog and Cat, 2nd Edition
an in-depth look at both normal and non-standard subjects along with
demonstrations of proper technique and image interpretations.
authors Donald E. Thrall
and Ian D. Robertson
describe a wider range of
"normal" as compared to competing books - not only showing standard dogs
and cats, but also non-standard subjects such as overweight and
underweight pets and animals with breed-specific variations. Every body
part is put into context with a textual description to help explain why a
structure appears as it does in radiographs, and enabling practitioners
to appreciate variations of normal that are not included, based on an
understanding of basic radiographic principles.Key Features
Table of contents
- Radiographic images of normal or standard prototypical animals
are supplemented by images of non-standard subjects exhibiting
breed-specific differences, physiologic variants, or common congenital
- Images that depict a wider range of "normal" - such as
images that detail the natural growth and aging characteristics of
normal pediatric and senior animals - prevents clinical under- and
- In-depth coverage of patient positioning and radiographic exposure guidelines assist clinicians in producing the very best results.Unlabeled radiographs along side labeled counterparts clarifies important anatomic structures of clinical interest.
- High-quality digital images provide excellent contrast
resolution and better visibility of normal structures to assist
clinicians in making accurate diagnoses.
- Brief descriptive text and explanatory legends accompany all images to help put concepts into the proper context.
- An overview of radiographic technique includes the effects of patient positioning, respiration, and exposure factors.
