Book Description

Veterinarians need increasingly to be familiar with the interpretation of ultrasound imaging. In this magnificent volume, the authors set standards as they describe all the main aspects of sonography affecting diagnosis in dogs and cats, including ultrasound, m-mode, pulsed and color Doppler echography. Particular attention is devoted to echocardiography, abdominal and pelvic sonography, and foetal ultrasonography.

This book also deals with recognition of the disease process and courses of treatment. The authors further illustrate cases by using conventional radiography, computed microfocal tomographs, photographs of specimens and line drawings. Designed and produced for ease of use this volume has become a source of constant and essential reference for veterinarians in training, practice, teaching, and research that need to interpret ultrasound imaging.

Reviews

In diagnostic imaging... the quality of the illustrations is of paramount importance. In this respect the book excels, as the illustrations are not only of high quality but also thoughtfully laid out and labelled for maximum impact... recommended to anyone with a serious interest in imaging, both for private study and for practical daily use.
