Radiology and ultrasound are the primary diagnostic imaging techniques available to the veterinarian. The responsibility to provide useful diagnostic images usually falls on the shoulders of the veterinary radiologist/radiographer. The book has twenty four s prepared as per the syllabus framed by Veterinary Council of India (VCI) will assist veterinary students in their understanding the radiology and other diagnostic imaging technology in veterinary discipline and act as an excellent complement to the students both at undergraduate and postgraduate level, interns, veterinarian who are called upon to diagnose an unfamiliar species. Present book is aimed to provide a s: review questions, contains more than two hundred solved objective types questions for various entrance tests viz: Pre- P.G, ICAR-JRF, ICAR-SRF, ARS, Pre-IAS, State PSC, State civil services examination and interviews. At the end, available glossary literature on imaging related terms has been incorporated for the benefit of ready and quick revision.
The subject matter in the book is so graded that undergraduate and post-graduate students, veterinary surgeons working in the field, teachers and as well as research scholar in veterinary surgery and those interested in the welfare of the farmers could benefit from the book.
