BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Ultrasonography

In the latest addition to the BSAVA imaging Manuals series, this book provides an overview of the physical principles of ultrasonography and discusses the equipment required as well as the general principles of the ultrasound examination. It then moves on to discuss body systems in individual chapters, with each chapter following a similar format:

• Indications
• Comparison of ultrasonography with radiography and CT
• Imaging technique
• Normal ultrasonographic appearance
• Interpretation of disease.

The Manual is extensively illustrated with images of both normal anatomy and the abnormalities associated with disease. In addition, as the moving image is such a vital part of interpreting ultrasound studies, a DVD-ROM featuring video clips relevant to the individual chapters accompanies this Manual.
