Covering many different diagnostic tools, this essential resource explores both traditional treatments and alternative therapies for conditions that can cause gait abnormalities in horses. Broader in scope than any other book of its kind, this edition describes equine sporting activities and specific lameness conditions in major sport horse types, and includes up-to-date information on all imaging modalities. This title includes additional digital media when purchased in print format. For this digital book edition, media content may not be included. Cutting-edge information on diagnostic application for computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging includes the most comprehensive section available on MRI in the live horse. Coverage of traditional treatment modalities also includes many aspects of alternative therapy, with a practical and realistic perspective on prognosis. An examination of the various types of horses used in sports describes the lameness conditions to which each horse type is particularly prone, as well as differences in prognosis. Guidelines on how to proceed when a diagnosis cannot easily be reached help you manage conditions when faced with the limitations of current diagnostic capabilities. Clinical examination and diagnostic analgesia are given a special emphasis. Practical, hands-on information covers a wide range of horse types from around the world. A global perspective is provided by a team of international authors, editors, and contributors. A full-color insert shows thermography images. Updated chapters include the most current information on topics such as MRI, foot pain, stem cell therapy, and shock wave treatment. Two new chapters include The Biomechanics of the Equine Limb and its Effect on Lameness and Clinical Use of Stem Cells, Marrow Components, and Other Growth Factors. The chapter on the hock has been expanded substantially, and the section on lameness associated with the foot has been completely rewritten to include state-of-the-art information based on what has been learned from MRI. Many new figures appear throughout the book.

Röntgenbefund und die sich in ihm widerspiegelnde pathologische Anatomie sind neben dem klinischen Bild die wichtigsten Säulen, auf denen die Diagnostik von Knochengeschwülsten und geschwulstähnlichen Läsionen beruht. Radiologen und Pathologen stellen in diesem Buch Klinik, Radiologie und Histolgie der verschiedenen Knochenläsionen am Gliedmaßen- und Achsenskelett umfassend und synoptisch dar. Das umfangreiche Material resultiert aus einer fünfzehnjährigen interdisziplinären Zusammenarbeit. In einem einleitenden Kapitel werden die verschiedenen radiologischen (konventionelles Röntgenbild, CT, Kernspintomographie, Angiographie, transkutane Biopsie) und histologischen Untersuchungstechniken und ihre Wertigkeit beschrieben. Der radiologischen Befundungsmethodik von Knochengeschwülsten u.a. mit Hilfe der Lodwick-Graduierung und einem neueren Staging-System für Knochengeschwülste werden eigene Kapitel gewidmet. Im speziellen Teil des Buches erfolgt die Darstellung der einzelnen benignen und malignen Knochengeschwülste in einer systematischen Untergliederung in ihre Häufigkeit, Lokalisation, Alters- und Geschlechtsprädilektion, Klinik und Prognose, Histologie, Radiologie und Differentialdiagnose. Besonders die unter den Knochengeschwülsten und tumorähnlichen Läsionen häufig vorkommenenden Entitäten sind mit einem umfassenden Bildmaterial ausgestattet, um dem breiten Spektrum ihrer Morphologie gerecht zu werden. Durch das Verständnis klinischer, radiologischer und pathologisch-anatomischer Befunde werden Diagnostik und Therapie der Skelettläsionen sehr erleichtert. Die synoptische Art der Darstellung macht dieses Buch für alle Disziplinen, die sich mit Knochentumoren befassen, zu einem idealen Nachschlagewerk.
