This is a Pageburst digital textbook; the product description may vary from the print textbook. Use this atlas to interpret radiographic images and make accurate diagnoses! Hundreds of high-quality images clearly demonstrate normal avian anatomic and radiographic features in a wide variety of species so that you can recognize abnormal features. This book includes detailed directions for patient positioning along with radiographic exposure guidelines, ensuring that you obtain the highest quality diagnostic images. Complete directions for positioning during radiographic examination help you take high-quality radiographs for accurate interpretation. Radiographic exposure guidelines are provided for each species and radiographic view, so you can determine optimal settings and technique. Line drawings are superimposed on radiographic images, so you can identify anatomic structures accurately. Alternative imaging studies - including CT, MRI, ultrasound, GI, urogram, and other contrast media studies -allow advanced diagnostic interpretation. A companion CD includes all of the radiographic images in the book for digital monitor viewing.

With a focus on birds, reptiles, and mammals, Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging: Avian and Exotic Pets discusses veterinary diagnostic imaging and new technologies for multiple modalities to help you accurately diagnose and pinpoint common injuries and disease. Divided into three sections — Birds, Mammals, and Reptiles — each section includes valuable information on positioning for specific structures, imaging findings, and more for each species with a wealth of photographs to provide real-life examples. Atlas-sized radiographs allow you to easily visualize the injury or indication of disease. Comparison radiographs display a normal image with an abnormal image to highlight differences and help you identify abnormalities in practice. “Telescopic images provide close-up views of larger radiographs to help you identify salient points visible in the radiograph. Content tailored to each species highlights the common injuries and diseases for each avian and exotic species. Discussions of multiple modalities including ultrasound, MRI, and CT provide all the information you need for diagnostic imaging in one resource.
Jetzt auch in englischer Sprache! Dieser Atlas ist eine bislang einmalige Zusammenstellung aller bildgebenden Verfahren für die drei großen „Heimtierklassen" Vögel, Kleinsäuger und Reptilien. Separate Sektionen des Buches behandeln die drei Tierklassen, was ein schnelles und spezifisches Nachschlagen von Informationen und Bildreferenzen ermöglicht. Jede Sektion beginnt mit der anatomischen Darstellung der Körperregionen in den einzelnen Diagnostikverfahren. In einem zweiten Teil werden die häufigsten pathologischen Befunde nach den Organsystemen dargestellt und im Vergleich besprochen. Die vergleichende Darstellung ermöglicht die schnelle und richtige Diagnose mit dem adäquaten Diagnostikverfahren. Alle Röntgen-, Ultraschall-, CT- und MRT-Bilder sind eindeutig beschriftet. Mit rund 1500 Abbildungen ist dieser Atlas ein konkurrenzloses diagnostisches Archiv für die Heimtierpraxis.
Radiology is a routine diagnostic procedure in all fields of clinical veterinary practice, and exotic medicine is no exception. Besides an increasing interest and concurrent demand for a higher level of care of these species, very little is reported in the scientific literature about normal radiographic patterns, and radiographic abnormalities are generally limited to case reports. Clinical Radiology of Exotic Companion Mammals is designed to fill this gap. It provides a practical resource for veterinarians wishing to add these special species to their clinical practice, and a ready reference for those already including those species among their caseload. Clearly labeled normal images will aid anyone interested in comparative radiographic anatomy, and the techniques section will help overcome difficulties related to the smaller size of many exotic companion mammals. Features of the book include: wide range of exotic mammal species beyond ferrets, rabbits, and rodents, including species such as marsupials, hedgehogs and potbellied pigs a review of the basic principles of radiology, equipment, radiologic techniques and patient positioning helpful for optimizing exotic companion mammal radiography an extensive review of both normal and pathologic radiographic patterns. Some of the latter are accompanied by clinical or surgical images to aid the practitioner in familiarization with a wide range of both common and uncommon lesions.
Avian Medicine and Surgery in Practice is an invaluable quick reference resource for clinicians and a useful study guide for veterinary students. In this practical and beautifully illustrated book, early chapters cover physical examination, advice on interpreting diagnostic tests, and avian anatomy and physiology. Disorders affecting the different body regions and systems make up the majority of the book from the external—skin, feathers, eyes, legs and feet—to the internal including the gastrointestinal tract and the cardiovascular system. Further aspects of avian medicine discussed in the book include behavioural problems, incubation of eggs, paediatrics and surgery. Written by an expert with more than 30 years of clinical experience in avian medicine, the new edition is thoroughly revised with updated diseases, new and expanded clinical techniques, and over 100 new color illustrations. It also adds four important new chapters: Husbandry, Grooming and Nutrition, Diagnostic Imaging, Endoscopy, and Oncology as well as new sections on cardiovascular anatomy and neuroanatomy.
"Here is a volume that has no parallel. . . . A good reference book for those interested in the details of avian anatomy."--Science Books & Films "A gold mine of facts. . . . Every library and biology department, as well as every birder, should have a copy close at hand."--Roger Tory Peterson, from the foreword One of the most heavily illustrated ornithology references ever written, Manual or Ornithology is a visual guide to the structure and anatomy of birds--a basic tool for investigation for anyone curious about the fascinating world of birds. A concise atlas of anatomy, it contains more than 200 specially prepared accurate and clear drawings that include material never illustrated before. The text is as informative as the drawings; written at a level appropriate to undergraduate students and to bird lovers in general, it discusses why birds look and act the way they do. Designed to supplement a basic ornithology textbook, the Manual of Ornithology covers systematics and evolution, topography, feathers and flight, the skeleton and musculature, and the digestive, circulatory, respiratory, excretory, reproductive, sensory, and nervous systems of birds, as well as field techniques for watching and studying birds. Each chapter concludes with a list of key references for the topic covered, with a comprehensive bibliography at the end of the volume.
