This work provides a practical presentation of the uses and interpretation of abdominal plain film for the small animal practitioner. It includes essential clinical information in a concise and easy to access format for the veterinary practitioner and student. The work is designed to help the reader to learn how to transform a radiograph from a flat black and white picture to a 3D image with multiple shades of grey, an improved visualisation of the abdomen that it represents. This publication describes the normal appearance of the abdomen, ways in which the radiographic appearance changes to reflect disease, basic radiographic techniques, and common abdominal disorders. Contained within this book are around 250 images that add value to the text component. Topics covered include: radiographic technique; normal radiographic anatomy of the abdomen; peritoneal cavity; intra-abdominal masses; alimentary tract; urinary tract; and reproductive tract and anomalies.
