Atlas of Small Animal Diagnostic Imaging PDF, Comprehensive and up-to-date resource on the interpretation of diagnostic images in small animals using survey radiographs and other modalities.

Atlas of Small Animal Diagnostic Imaging provides a comprehensive, multimodality atlas of small animal diagnostic imaging, with high-quality images depicting radiography, scintigraphy, ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. Diagnostic Imaging of Dogs and Cats

Taking a traditional body systems approach, the book offers an image-intensive resource to survey radiographs with some other imaging modalities being used to emphasize interpretation of survey radiographs. The Atlas offers clinically relevant information for small animal practitioners and students.

Each body structure is thoroughly covered and well-illustrated, with discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of each modality in various scenarios.

Edited by three experienced radiographers, The Atlas of Small Animal Diagnostic Imaging contains information on:

  • Basics of diagnostic imaging, physics of diagnostic imaging, CT and MRI physics, US physics, and nuclear medicine physics
  • Musculoskeletal normal anatomic variants, developmental orthopedic disease, joint disease, fracture and fracture healing, aggressive bone disease, and head and spine imaging
  • Thorax anatomy, variants, and interpretation paradigm, extra thoracic structures, pleural space, pulmonary parenchyma, and mediastinum
  • Abdomen anatomy, variants, and interpretation paradigm, extra-abdominal and body wall, peritoneal and retroperitoneal, liver and biliary, and spleen

With its expansive coverage of the subject and hundreds of high-quality images to aid in efficient and seamless reader comprehension, Atlas of Small Animal Diagnostic Imaging is an invaluable and must-have resource for small animal practitioners, veterinary students, veterinary radiologists, and specialists in a number of areas.

Why another diagnostic imaging textbook? There are many excellent textbooks on veterinary imaging that have been published previously and are still moving forward, with historical editions being replaced with new ones. We felt that this text should be first and foremost an introduction to diagnostic imaging, although most of the text deals primarily with radiology.

But more importantly, this textbook was meant to be an atlas so that we could show not necessarily the “classic” cases but some average cases and how the same disease can look differently depending on the stage of the disease at the time when the images are made. Being an atlas, this textbook is not a com- prehensive overview of all the different diseases that one may find in the literature, but should serve as an approach for “com- mon things occurring commonly.” And when there is overlap between different disease presentations on the radiographs, formulating a prioritized differential diagnosis list is given precedence. It is hoped that the book will serve as a foundation upon which the reader can add layers of information (science) and clinical experience (art) over the course of their career in veterinary medicine.
