Diagnostic Imaging of Exotic Pets – Birds, Small Mammals, Reptiles
by Maria Elisabeth Krautwald-Junghanns, Michael Pees, Sven Reese, Thomas Tully in November 2010
This comprehensive atlas covers birds, small mammals and reptiles. All imaging techniques have been included: radiography, sonography, CT and MRI. It is an ideal supplement to literature presently available on imaging diagnostics for small animals.
The book is divided into sections for each type of pet so that relevant information and visual references can be rapidly consulted. Every section begins with the anatomical illustration of the relevant part of the body with respect to each of the individual diagnostic procedures. In the second part of the book, the most common pathological conditions are depicted according to organ system and discussed comparatively. This comparative presentation enables a quick and correct diagnosis in conjunction with using the most suitable diagnostic techniques.
All radiographic, sonographic, CT and MRI images are clearly labelled. Containing over 1,400 illustrations, this atlas is an unrivalled resource for veterinarians in practice and training dealing with small animals, birds and reptiles.
With this atlas, the practicing veterinarian is provided information regarding the most important investigation techniques and interpretation aids, so that these valuable diagnostic methods can be used on a daily basis. Two diagnostic imaging modalities (computed tomography [CT] and magnetic resonance imaging [MRI]) are also described which, in most cases, are only avail-able in specialized clinics. The respective indications for the use of CT and MRI on companion exotic animals are explained so that an attending clinician can determine if one of these advanced imaging tests is required for their patient.
