Thrall's 'Textbooks of Veterinary Diagnostic Radiology', now in its editio, has been a major reference text on this topic for overa quarter of a century. The aim of the book is to provide instruction in canine, feline and equine radiology to undergraduate and postgraduate students...This new edition of a staple radiology textbook continues to provide excellent learning and reference material in canine, feline and equine imaging for students and qualified vets. It would be a worthwhile addition to a practice or personal library."
