    Nearly 200 cases are presented, each beginning with the patient’s age, gender, breed, and species. The reason the patient was brought to the clinic is discussed along with preliminary examination and diagnostic test findings. Supporting high-quality images are also presented with each case.

    A separate section presents detailed answers for each case including information on the radiographic findings. Also included are the radiographic diagnosis, comments, and notes on whether further imaging or evaluation is needed.

    Small Animal Imaging: Self-Assessment Review is a well-organized compilation of clinical cases and is simply divided into 3 parts: abdomen, thorax, and musculoskeletal system. It has an index at the back in addition to a listing of broad classifications of cases in the front, which enables readers to easily locate information regarding a specific type of case. The text is minimal and easy to follow and understand.
