Rule Outs in Small Animal Medicine

Describes the process of exclusion ("ruling out") for all aspects of internal medicine in dogs and cats, and ultimately leads to confirmation of a specific diagnosis.

Rule Outs in Small Animal Medicine

- The easy way to a correct diagnosis: comprehensive and concise - Expert knowledge for everyday clinical work - Helpful tool for studies and exams! How to achieve a reliable diagnosis even in complex clinical cases! Internal medicine cases can be complex and challenging. To manage such challenges, it is helpful to know the possible pathophysiological causes of a particular clinical problem, to be able to evaluate this problem in an individual case and to exclude anything not relevant for this patient using diagnostic pathways. This book describes this process of exclusion (ruling out) for all aspects of internal medicine in dogs and cats, and ultimately leads to confirmation of a specific diagnosis. Rule outs therefore are an important basis for everyday clinical work and provide a practical guideline for a systematic problem-oriented approach to patients. For students, these rule outs are a prerequisite for understanding the pathophysiology of clinical presentations and laboratory changes. For experienced clinicians, rule outs are a helpful diagnostic guide especially when dealing with complex cases.

The "Atlas of Radiographic Anatomy of the Cat" is the second volume of a new edition of the well-known "Atlas of Radiographic Anatomy of the Dog and Cat", 5th edition, by H. Schebitz and H. Wilkens, written in 1989. 50 sampled x-ray images of healthy cats have been categorized topographically into six chapters (head, vertebral column, thoracic limb, pelvic limb, thorax and abdomen). Colored illustrations and differentiated legends improve the survey and the identification of searched structures. Corresponding positioning sketches and helpful remarks are attached to each x-ray image on the same page. Further short remarks on positioning, x-ray image exposure and contrast procedures complete this atlas. Colored sketches demonstrate the skeletal development in the first one and a half years. The team of authors has radically updated the approved standard work. Samples of x-ray images, sketches and graphics are intended to improve the interpretation of your own x-ray images. Only a knowledge of radiographic anatomy provides the basis for the diagnosis of pathological alterations.
