Atlas of Clinical Imaging and Anatomy of the Equine Head is a comprehensive reference of the cross-sectional anatomy of the head of equids that features photographs of gross sections, CT images, and MRI scans of the head in transverse, sagittal, and dorsal planes. The photographs of gross-section preparations are excellent, and most anatomic features are readily identifiable. Furthermore, the anatomic labels are exhaustive.. .... The provided images should enable readers to recognize most anatomic structures on other MRI pulse sequences.. .... In addition to the anatomic atlas, the book contains a well-written introduction that briefly explains the basic principles of CT and MRI interpretation and considerations for image acquisition. Readers unfamiliar with CT and MRI will gain a superficial understanding of what influences tissue appearance in images acquired by the use of those modalities, and appropriate references are provided for readers who wish to learn more. This book will be useful for radiologists, surgeons, internists, and other practitioners who occasionally need to acquire diagnostic images of the heads of horses (Reviewed by Derek Cissell, VMD, PhD, DACVR, University of California-Davis, Davis, Calif 15th June 2017 AVMA)
