Ultrasonography Of The Bovine Musculoskeletal System: Indications, Examination Protocols, Findings

By Johann Kofler

The ultrasound examination of the bovine musculoskeletal system is established as a routine examination in veterinary clinics worldwide. Practical veterinarians use their existing ultrasound equipment not only for gynaecological but increasingly also for orthopaedic examinations of calves and adult cattle. Ultrasonography Of The Bovine Musculoskeletal System: Indications, Examination Protocols, Findings PDF provides specific instructions for the ultrasonographic examination of individual joints and describes particular anatomical landmarks of each region as a guide. In over 300 illustrations, international specialists present normal sonoanatomical findings and sonopathological findings of common diseases. A must have for modern cattle practitioners who want to broaden their diagnostic horizon!
