Clinical Radiology of the Horse is the best-selling practical guide to all areas of equine radiography and radiology, written by an experienced group of clinicians with a broad range of backgrounds. As with previous editions, this fourth edition provides more than 700 normal and clinical images including annotated radiographs and line diagrams. Many of the images have been replaced by digital images, and there are also many new illustrations, both in the textbook and on the companion website. It provides a comprehensive guide both to the techniques used to obtain radiographs of the horse, and to radiographic interpretation. The normal radiographic anatomy of immature and mature horses is presented with normal variations, incidental findings and details of significant abnormalities. Remarks on clinical prognosis and treatment are also included. The text has been updated to include new information, knowledge gained from continued clinical experience and the most relevant references from recent literature. The emphasis throughout is on practical tips, common pitfalls, and the techniques used to obtain the best radiographs of specific areas and conditions.
