Radiographic Techniques: The Dog facilitates radiographic studies of dogs and helps establish consistent standards in patient positioning. The authors include views that are known to produce excellent results in most clinical situations. Offering practical instructions, the book should be kept conveniently near the controls of the X-ray machine. Space is provided in each section for the user to record specific techniques that have been used successfully, In addition to figures that demonstrate patient positioning, the various methods for achieving patient restraint are illustrated. All necessary radiographic views are included in each anatomic study. Central beam direction for each view is described briefly. When recommended, changes in teh focal-film distance are specified, and the infrequent use of nonscreen film is described. Radiographic examination of the head and spine receives special attention because of the difficulty of radiographic diagnosis in these areas and the requirement for multiple views. Because of the frequency of traumatic injury to the pelvis and hip joint and to facilitate analysis of hip dysplasia and the cauda equina syndrome radiography of these structures is considered in detail. This book provides a helpful cook book resource for veterinary students and technicians working in busy practices.
