Diagnostic Ultrasound in Small Animal Practice
by Paddy Mannion
This new version of Frances Barr’s classic introductory text, Diagnostic Ultrasound in the Dog and Cat, has now been revised and expanded to cover the considerable technological and knowledge based advances since the first book was published in 1990. With contributions from leading subject experts, this new book covers both the theoretical principles behind the use of ultrasound in small animal practice and the practical approach to image interpretation.
In-keeping with the user-friendly style of Frances Barr’s book, the book is extensively illustrated with photographs and accompanying line drawings. Organised around body systems, each chapter covers imaging procedures, normal appearances, abnormal appearances/diseases and specific conditions. Exotic animals, such as rabbits and reptiles are also included, as are new Doppler techniques.
This practical guide is essential reading for all those involved in small animal imaging.
