Clinical Radiology of the Horse
Third edition
by Janet A. Butler

Clinical Radiology of the Horse provides a comprehensive overview of radiography and radiology of all areas of the horse. It is a thorough guide both to the techniques used to obtain radiographs of the horse, and to radiographic interpretation. With almost 600 superb annotated radiographs and more than 120 line diagrams, the book combines the best features of a high quality atlas and those of a detailed text book.

The normal radiographic anatomy of immature and mature horses is presented, with normal variations, incidental findings and details of significant abnormalities. Remarks on clinical prognosis and treatment are also included. The emphasis throughout is on practical tips, common pitfalls, and the techniques used to obtain the best radiographs of specific areas and conditions. Changes for the third edition:

  • Significantly enlarged to include a chapter on digital radiography
  • Includes descriptions of several new radiographic projections
  • Many of the images have been replaced by digital images, and there are also many new illustrations
  • Expanded information on processing and image quality
  • Updated to include new information, knowledge gained from continued clinical experience and the most relevant references from recent literature
  • CD included with the book presenting all the radiographic images in electronic format

There have been major advances in other imaging techniques, including scintigraphy, ultrasonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging since the second edition. This third edition still focuses on radiography and radiology, but acknowledges the limitations of radiography in some circumstances. In these situations reference is made to other imaging techniques which may be appropriate, with suggestions for further reading.
