Product Description

From the Back Cover

Jean–Marie Denoix is the world′s leading equine musculoskeletal system anatomist and has become one of the foremost equine diagnostic ultrasonographers. There is, therefore, nobody better to compile a reference atlas of the clinical anatomy of the foot, pastern and fetlock, correlated with images obtained by radiography, diagnostic ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging. Advanced imaging techniques require in–depth knowledge of anatomy for accurate interpretation and especially when using magnetic resonance imaging this must be a 3–dimensional concept of anatomy.

This book provides a unique contribution and will be an invaluable reference text. The image quality is extraordinarily high and the multiple views of each area of the distal limb provide an extremely detailed evaluation. Each part opens with characteristically superb anatomical drawing by the author. Each spread of pages deals with a single dissection viewed by means of colour photographs, labelled black and white equivalents, plus x–rays, ultrasound and MRI scans as required. The book is designed for maximum clarity using a generous page size.

The atlas will be essential for anybody involved in detailed anatomical study, complex lameness evaluation or advanced imaging techniques.

The best book I have ever purchased. Gives clear, logical and well labelled guide to all aspects of the distal limb from specimen photographs to diagnostic imagery techniques. Finite detail, every tendon and ligament clearly labelled from all angles, from epithelium down to bone. Simply amazing and more than worth the hefty price if this is your interest. Essential for anyone in diagnostics.

beautiful book, but why on earth.... 10 Dec. 2011
By 4bozzza - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
beautiful book, but why on earth is there an iron shoe still attached to a dissected hove??? And described as if it is part of the hoof?
Ever seen a picture of a human foot in a anatomy book with the shoe still on?
Once and again: a shoe is not part of a horse!

But....the rest of the book is wonderful!
Great investment 24 Dec. 2010

This book is great, it is very detailed and the MRI images are extremely helpful. It is a great way to review your anatomy especially when it comes to MRI images. They did a great job with the dissections, it helped me a lot in school to have this reference for all of the tendons and ligaments in the equine limb. Having been done with anatomy for a while now, I find this book most helpful for the MRI images. I also use it for a review for surgery because the images are so great. I had this on my wish list for a long time and now that I own it I have no complaints about this book.

This is a beautiful text - a real work of art. I've been using it for a course on equine locomotor anatomy and it has been an invaluable resource. The price is steep, but I think I will get a lot of continued use out of this text as my veterinary studies advance.

Pratical valutation 27 Feb. 2010
By Giovanni Lezoli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A great atlas, with beautiful images, it lacks a description of ultrasound characteristis of anatomical structures (for example size and echogenicity of the ligaments).
