Atlas of Diagnostic Radiology of the Horse
Diseases of the Front and Hind Limbs
Second edition
by Kees J. Dik

Atlas of Diagnostic Radiology of the Horse familiarizes the practitioner with all common and uncommon features of the various bone and joint diseases of the equine limbs.

The book defines the clinical significance of various findings and notes additional information as necessary. Schematic drawings facilitate the observation of small, obscure details and to provide examples of “characteristic” lesions.

Contents are arranged by location and include foot, pastern joint, fetlock joint, cannon and splint bones, carpus, elbow, shoulder, hock joint, stifle joint, and pelvis.

The revised and expanded second edition of this manual:

  • provides full coverage of diagnostic radiology of the equine front and hind limbs
  • includes many new illustrations which cover all parts of the equine limb with emphasis on the various lesions of the foot, fetlock abnormalities, carpal disorders as well as common and uncommon hock and stifle lesions
  • contains text of specific case discussions and offers clear description of the radiographic findings and the radiographic or differential diagnosis

The detailed information, combined with over 750 radiographs and drawings, make Atlas of Diagnostic Radiology of the Horse a notable reference for equine veterinary practitioners.
