Covering many different diagnostic tools, this essential resource explores both traditional treatments and alternative therapies for conditions that can cause gait abnormalities in horses. Broader in scope than any other book of its kind, this edition describes equine sporting activities and specific lameness conditions in major sport horse types, and includes up-to-date information on all imaging modalities. This title includes additional digital media when purchased in print format. For this digital book edition, media content may not be included. Cutting-edge information on diagnostic application for computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging includes the most comprehensive section available on MRI in the live horse. Coverage of traditional treatment modalities also includes many aspects of alternative therapy, with a practical and realistic perspective on prognosis. An examination of the various types of horses used in sports describes the lameness conditions to which each horse type is particularly prone, as well as differences in prognosis. Guidelines on how to proceed when a diagnosis cannot easily be reached help you manage conditions when faced with the limitations of current diagnostic capabilities. Clinical examination and diagnostic analgesia are given a special emphasis. Practical, hands-on information covers a wide range of horse types from around the world. A global perspective is provided by a team of international authors, editors, and contributors. A full-color insert shows thermography images. Updated chapters include the most current information on topics such as MRI, foot pain, stem cell therapy, and shock wave treatment. Two new chapters include The Biomechanics of the Equine Limb and its Effect on Lameness and Clinical Use of Stem Cells, Marrow Components, and Other Growth Factors. The chapter on the hock has been expanded substantially, and the section on lameness associated with the foot has been completely rewritten to include state-of-the-art information based on what has been learned from MRI. Many new figures appear throughout the book.

Whole body computed tomography has developed at a rapid pace in the past decade, spurred on by the introduction of spiral and multislice scanning. These new technologies have not only improved diagnostic accuracy, but also made new applications possible that were previously accessible only through more complex or invasive techniques.This new book expertly fills a gap in the literature by combining the practically relevant technical background with the clinical information required for correctly performing and interpreting CT examinations. The book presents the state-of-the-art capabilities and requirements of CT as a key diagnostic and interventional tool, with special emphasis on the role of spiral and multi-slice CT. You will find a thorough introduction to CT technology from scanner design to 3D image reconstruction, useful practical hints on how to optimize your examination protocols and how to keep the radiation exposure of your patients to a minimum, as well as an extensive clinical section in which symptoms, pathology and CT morphology are integrated to provide you withthe basis for subtle interpretation of CT findings using the most modern CT techniques.Highlights include:- Full coverage of single-slice, 4-slice and 16-slice scanning techniques- Introduction to extended CT applications including cardiac CT,CT fluoroscopy,and 3D image processing- Organ-specific protocols for scanning and contrast administration- Practical guidelines for maximizing image quality and minimizing radiation exposure- Useful suggestions for image interpretation and for avoiding pitfalls and errors- Convenient format by organ systemand disease entity- Full discussion of organ-specific pathology and CT morphology- CT indications integrated with other imaging modalitiesAt a time when CT examinations are becoming more technically demanding and complex, with an increasing number of scan parameters and advances in 3D reconstructions, this book is an essential professional tool. Experienced practitioners will find their diagnostic and technical skills improved by reading the book, and beginners will enjoy the clear, systematic approach that will help them use the technique with confidence.

When the first edition of this BSAVA Manual published in 1989, it became acknowledged as an essential reference manual for the veterinary radiologist. The new edition incorporates the expanding field of diagnostic imaging and includes ultrasonography which has now become an integral part of many small animal practices. The manual continues to serve as an essential tool for every busy practice. The new field of ultrasound has meant that those areas of the body that were difficult to visualise by X rays are now visible and it is possible to have images generated of these to assist diagnosis. Safety for clients and staff continues to take priority in the Manual. The book also brings the next stage of imaging into the picture with information on both Magnetic Resonance Imgaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT) scans. This book is an asset to any veterinary practice.
