""It is no exaggeration to state that this book will change the lives of all veterinary surgeons regularly involved with raptors, with respect to radiograph interpretation......This book contains practical, useful information that can be used on a daily basis by the avian veterinarian, and fully deserves to become a standard textbook in both avian and wildlife practices."" - Michael Stanford, The Veterinary Record, July 14 2007 ""The aim of this text according to the authors was toproduce a reference atlas on the anatomical and clinical radiology of birds of prey that could be used within the veterinary profession. Samour and Naldo certainly go some way to achieving this goal with an extensive catalogue of standardised radiographic images. The book can essentially be divided into four main sections; radiographic technique, anatomical radiology of representative species, clinical radiographic conditions and advanced imaging techniques. The latter is touched on in the text but expanded upon in far greater detail within the interactive DVD that is included. In conclusion this book is a well illustrated and informative text with something to offer both the student and the specialist raptor practitioner. It helps to strengthen our foundation of knowledge in avian and raptor medicine at a time when, as Nigel Harcourt Brown says in the foreword, "cutting edge topics based on small numbers of cases? seem to be the order of the day. I would recommend all veterinarians involvedwith birds of prey to purchase this book."" - FALCO, The Newsletter of the Middle East Falcon Research Group, Issue No.30 Autumn 2007Reseña del editor:
"Anatomical and Clinical Radiology of Birds of Prey" is a comprehensive atlas of the normal radiographic anatomy of raptors including the saker falcon, gyr falcon, common barn owl, Eurasian eagle owl, northern goshawk, red kite, Eurasian honey buzzard, palm nut vulture and steppe eagle. It also describes the clinical and pathological conditions that are commonly encountered in birds of prey. Uniquely, in this atlas, a color photograph of a particular clinical condition (e.g. bumblefoot) or a photograph taken during a post-mortem examination is presented together with the radiograph. Radiographic procedures such as positioning techniques, contrast radiography and magnification radiography are also presented. The chapter on advanced clinical anatomy imaging includes ultrasonography, computed axial tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. This chapter and the related interactive DVD aim to be learning tools for those who want to acquire a basic knowledge of veterinary digital imaging in the field of avian medicine. Highly illustrated with over 70 color photographs, 290 radiographs and 120 line illustrations, "Anatomical and Clinical Radiology of Birds of Prey" will be of great use to avian veterinarians, zoo veterinarians, rehabilitators, academicians, students and others interested in raptor anatomy and medicine.
