147. Old Radiographic Techniques Revisited

Many schools teach radiographic techniques that are no longer used on a regular basis. But why not? This session will review compression radiography, positional radiography, pneumogastrography, and pneumocolons and partial barium enemas; discuss their advantages and indications for clinical practice; and explore why and how these techniques can still be used as adjunct imaging studies in small animal practice.
