Atlas of Normal Radiographic Anatomy and Anatomic Variants in the Dog and Cat - Elsevier eBook on VitalSource
- High-quality digital images show anatomic structures with excellent contrast resolution to enable accurate diagnoses.
- Radiographic images of normal or "standard" prototypical animals are supplemented by images of non-standard subjects exhibiting breed-specific differences, physiologic variants, or common congenital malformations.
- Brief descriptive text and explanatory legends accompany images, putting concepts into the proper context and ensuring a more complete understanding.
- Clear labeling of important anatomic structures includes cropped images to emphasize key points, and makes it quicker and easier to recognize unlabeled radiographs.
- An overview of radiographic technique includes the effects of patient positioning, respiration, and exposure factors.
- Radiographs of immature patients show the effect of patient age on anatomic appearance.
- A wide range of "normal" animals is described, to prevent clinical under- and over-diagnosing of clinical patients.
