Reviews

-Radiology remains one of the main diagnostic tools in veterinary practice, and image interpretation can present a significant challenge to the practitioner. Thrall's 'd104books of Veterinary Diagnostic Radiology', now in its editio, has been a major reference text on this topic for overa quarter of a century. The aim of the book is to provide instruction in canine, feline and equine radiology to undergraduate and postgraduate students...This new edition of a staple radiology textbook continues to provide excellent learning and reference material in canine, feline and equine imaging for students and qualified vets. It would be a worthwhile addition to a practice or personal library.- Vet Record, Oct 2012 "Radiology remains one of the main diagnostic tools in veterinary practice, and image interpretation can present a significant challenge to the practitioner.
