This, the second edition of the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Musculoskeletal Imaging, has been extensively updated reflecting the dramatic changes that have taken place in radiography over the past 10 years.
With the increasing availability of digital radiography in general veterinary practice and a greater accessibility to cross-sectional imaging techniques the editors have included five new chapters covering the basics of the different imaging modalities with particular reference to their use in musculoskeletal imaging. Comparisons are drawn between the different techniques and a generous use of illustrations and images bring an example driven clarity and understanding to the written word.
As in the previous edition, the manual is structured along anatomical lines and the updated chapters have all been expanded to include more ultrasound as well as CT, MRI and scintigraphy.
The practical nature of the manual makes it ideal for use in general practice as well as being a rich source of information for students and newly qualified veterinary surgeons. However, the depth of information supplied by an international panel of authors makes the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Musculoskeletal Imaging second edition a useful reference for orthopaedic surgeons and specialist radiologists.
Additionally, there is an accompanying CD featuring video clips as well as all the images used throughout the manual.
