Radiography in Veterinary Technology
on November 25, 1999
This book is awesome. I am a director of a veterinary technology program and this book is a required text. Although written for the technician, it would be helpful to a veterinary student, or practitioner, as well. This book discusses in detail such topics as the less than exciting information on anodes and cathodes, as well as radiation safety, and the ins and outs of film and cassettes. However this book's true value is in its handling of positioning and the origin of film artifacts,and the determination of the origin of poor film quality. If you need to know how to position a patient to get the correct radiograph for a body part, it has it, from where to collimate, to anatomical landmarks, to drawings of the animal positioned, to a picture of the radiograph that you will get as a result. This book not only covers small animals but large and exotics as well. Trouble shooting radiographic quality is also well covered. This book would serve as a great reference in a hospital for troubleshooting problems and as a source of information on how to get films of anatomical areas that aren't frequently required in the practice or of species that aren't commonly radiographed.
