Covering the principles of radiographic technique and interpretation for dogs, cats, and horses, Textbook of Veterinary Diagnostic Radiology, 6th Edition helps you develop proficiency in diagnostic skills. High-quality radiographic images accompany clear coverage of diagnostic radiology, ultrasound, MRI, and CT, as well as patient positioning, radiographic technique and safety measures, normal and abnormal anatomy, radiographic viewing and interpretation, and alternative imaging modalities. New to this edition is a chapter on MR spinal imaging and updated information on digital imaging. Written by radiology educator and expert Donald E. Thrall, along with a group of highly qualified, board-certified radiologists, this bestselling reference is a one-stop resource for the latest advances in veterinary diagnostic radiology.

  • Features comprehensive, logically organized coverage of the latest advances in imaging techniques and interpretation for the dog, cat, and horse.
  • A body systems approach presents information in a logical progression, covering skeletal versus soft tissue structures, normal anatomy, general radiographic changes, and the most common abnormalities affecting each particular system.
  • Discussion of the physics of radiology, CT, and MRI offers a better understanding of the radiographic process.
  • An atlas of normal radiographic anatomy of the dog and horse offers a basis for comparison to assist in recognizing abnormal findings.
  • Information on radiation safety highlights safety measures associated with ionizing radiation.
  • A self-assessment section at the end of each chapter evaluates understanding of key concepts and clinical applications.
  • High-quality radiographic images, illustrations, tables, and charts throughout clarify important concepts and interpretative principles.
  • A new chapter on Digital Images and Digital Radiographic Image Capture (Chapter 2).
  • Updated and expanded coverage of brain and spinal cord imaging, including CT and MRI.
  • More than 500 additional radiographic images that clarify key concepts.
