In the words of the authors, this "book's content is...oriented to frequently recurring problems of avian practice". The text begins with a brief discussion of the value of radiography in avian practice. The first portion of the book discusses the importance of correlating radiographic findings with the history of the bird's problems and species differences that can be evident radiographically.
