Because interpreting radiographic studies is an important aspect of veterinary diagnostics, optimal patient positioning is essential for meaningful radiographs. With this handbook, the practitioner and staff receive a detailed overview of positioning techniques geared to canine radiographic examinations.Chapters have been built systematically so that instructions are clear and fast reading, making the text useful even directly before examining a patient. Ideal positioning is illustrated in 200 drawings. Sketches of each radiographic view clarify anatomical structures and help interpret the related picture.This book is an excellent resource in achieving maximum preparation for radiographic evaluation. It is appropriate for veterinarians, veterinary students and veterinary technicians.
