Ultrasound has an increasing number of diagnostic applications in veterinary practice, with both large and small animals. Being non-invasive, it has considerable advantages over other methods and its cost is now well within the range of most veterinarians. It allows the clinician to obtain instant information about a wide range of body systems and in some cases the dynamic function of organs can be assessed. In addition, ultrasonography has led to new insights into basic anatomy and physiological processes. This book is the first to address the subject comprehensively across the full range of veterinary medicine and animal science. Species covered include small companion animals (cats and dogs), horses, cattle, sheep and goats, pigs and also fish. It will be an important reference guide for students and research workers in veterinary and animal sciences, as well as for veterinary practitioners wishing to obtain sonograms of diagnostic quality and keep abreast of the role of this technology.Goddard, P.
