Second edition of BSAVA's Thoracic Imaging manual released

The British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) has released the second edition of the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Thoracic Imaging.

This edition provides new knowledge, gathered from CTs and MRIs, some of which can be applied to radiographic interpretation.

The first section explores different imaging modalities for thoracic imaging, including recommended uses. The second section illustrates features of normalcy and disease in the main anatomic compartment of the thorax.

This includes structured information about thoracic imaging interpretation and individual body systems.

There is also a new chapter exploring how artificial intelligence could be applied to the practice.

Tobias Schwarz and Peter Scrivani, who edited the book, said: "We are grateful to the many radiologists and other specialists from around the world who contributed to this manual by writing chapters, supplying images, and providing feedback.

"Our aim was to ensure that the manual was as up-to-date, accurate and comprehensive as possible."

Print copies can be purchased in the BSAVA store, with a digital version in the BSAVA library.
