This is one of the best books I have come across. The images and the schematics are top quality and there are multiple images from different angles. It reads as if the authors truly want to convey this information in a way to make readers competent at ultrasound. It should be required reading for every small animal veterinarian.   (Doody s, 8 January 2015)

"The Atlas of Small Animal Ultrasonography is an extremely useful resource for all levels of ultrasound experience, from just starting out to specialist level. The format is easy to read and the multiple image modalities allow comprehension of positioning and tips and tricks to improve ultrasound skills." (Australian Veterinary Journal, 26 April 2017)
