Is it ever appropriate to diagnose and treat oral and dental problems without knowing the full extent of the problem? With more than 50% of anatomical structures and associated pathologies located below the gingivae and unseen to the eye, that’s the reality without the use of high-quality, accurately interpreted radiographs. Atlas of Dental Radiography in Dogs and Cats presents hundreds of actual radiographic images, which are clearly labeled to facilitate accurate identification of normal and abnormal features. This valuable new atlas shows you exactly how to correlate common dental conditions with radiographic signs. Radiographs are also compared side by side with actual anatomical photographs to confirm surface landmarks visible on the radiographs. Correct positioning techniques for producing diagnostic radiographs as well as helpful tips and pitfalls when obtaining quality radiographs are logically presented. This approach helps you produce consistently high-quality radiographs, sharpen your interpretive skills, and confidently treat a wide range of dental problems. Presents the most logical and useful approach to dental and oral radiography, using actual anatomical photographs for accurate clinical correlation Depicts original and color-labeled radiographs side-by-side for accurate identification of normal and abnormal structures Helps both veterinarians and technicians take the best possible radiographs, interpret them accurately, make sound treatment decisions, and monitor results Provides clear, technical guidance for taking quality radiographs and identifying artefacts and results of improper imaging technique and film development Presents clear pictorial instructions – from 2 angles – for correct positioning of the X-ray beam and intraoral films Offers new opportunities for expanded professional services and revenues in your practice Provides proof of compliance with standards of care for medical record documentation, helping you legally protect yourself, your staff, and your practice

Equip yourself to make accurate diagnoses and achieve successful treatment outcomes with this highly visual comprehensive atlas. Featuring a substantial number of new high contrast images, Atlas of Normal Radiographic Anatomy and Anatomic Variants in the Dog and Cat, 2nd Edition provides an in-depth look at both normal and non-standard subjects along with demonstrations of proper technique and image interpretations. Expert authors Donald E. Thrall and Ian D. Robertson describe a wider range of "normal" as compared to competing books — not only showing standard dogs and cats, but also non-standard subjects such as overweight and underweight pets and animals with breed-specific variations. Every body part is put into context with a textual description to help explain why a structure appears as it does in radiographs, and enabling practitioners to appreciate variations of normal that are not included, based on an understanding of basic radiographic principles. Radiographic images of normal or standard prototypical animals are supplemented by images of non-standard subjects exhibiting breed-specific differences, physiologic variants, or common congenital malformations. Images that depict a wider range of "normal" — such as images that detail the natural growth and aging characteristics of normal pediatric and senior animals — prevents clinical under- and over-diagnosing. In-depth coverage of patient positioning and radiographic exposure guidelines assist clinicians in producing the very best results. Unlabeled radiographs along side labeled counterparts clarifies important anatomic structures of clinical interest. High-quality digital images provide excellent contrast resolution and better visibility of normal structures to assist clinicians in making accurate diagnoses. Brief descriptive text and explanatory legends accompany all images to help put concepts into the proper context. An overview of radiographic technique includes the effects of patient positioning, respiration, and exposure factors. NEW! Companion website features additional radiographic CT scans and more than 100 questions with answers and rationales. NEW! Additional CT and 3D images have been added to each chapter to help clinicians better evaluate the detail of bony structures. NEW! Breed-specific images of dogs and cats are included throughout the atlas to help clinicians better understand the variances in different breeds. NEW! Updated material on oblique view radiography provides a better understanding of an alternative approach to radiography, particularly in fracture cases. NEW! 8.5" x 11" trim size makes the atlas easy to store.
