Clinical Radiology of Exotic Companion Mammals
by Vittorio Capello and Angela Lennox
Edition: 1st., 2008
Radiology is the extension of the clinician’s eyes and fingers for rapidly determining a working diagnosis. Normal radiographic standards for anatomy and common clinical conditions have been determined in small and large animal medicine. Not so in small mammal medicine. Normals and standards have not been established but rather assumed by cliniciansas they practice in their own vacuums-- their own clinics. With a greater understanding of normal radiographic anatomy, small mammal practitioners are able to visualize more subtle abnormalities. This greatly enhances the quality of care for their small mammal patients.
For the first time, Drs. Capello and Lennox have succeeded in bringing together the radiographic features of normal anatomy and those for common clinical conditions. The quality of their expansive work is evident in just a flip of several pages. The anatomy for a wide range of species is presented clearly and concisely, with descriptions to enhance understanding of the radiographic images. Clinicians will find the text user- friendly, allowing them to make more accurate diagnoses more quickly.
