Published Reviews


    The fourth edition of this practical text on the subject of radiography is a compilation of the three previous editions, together with the welcome addition of a chapter on digital radiography.

    This text is written by a veterinary technician, with contributions from two associate professors in radiology, and draws on her considerable experience as a teacher in this field.

    As such, it is clearly laid out and presented. The text also makes excellent use of the 506 accompanying illustrations, many of which are reproduced in very high quality.

    This excellent textbook us very readable and provides immediate access to the information required by veterinary professionals seeking to produce good quality radiographic images.
