Radiographic Contrast Studies Of The Urinary Tract

Survey radiographs are essential for establishing the radiographic technique and identifying subtle radiographic changes in the avian urinary tract after administration of contrast. Radiographic exposures should be made immediately after injection of the contrast medium. The contrast medium should be injected as a bolus directly into the intravenous catheter. Our clinical experience has led us to use nonionic iodinated contrast media for excretory urography. We have not performed double blind...

Positioning Technique For The Laterolateral Radiographic Study Of The Avian Coelom

Avian Radiographs

Before positioning the bird for radiographic examination, strips of paper bandage or masking tape are prepared. Paper tape is less traumatic to the pelage and skin than fabric bandage tape, Figure 1-1 Figure positioning equipment. A modified version of the traditional Bird Board is commercially available and allows for direct contact of the bird and the radiographic cassette. Figure 1-1 Figure positioning equipment. A modified version of the traditional Bird Board is commercially available and...

Radiographic Contrast Studies Of The Gastrointestinal Tract

Macaws Appearance And Anatomy

The rapid digestive tract transit time of birds and the anatomy of their digestive tract make it possible to study the majority of the digestive tract using a single radiographic protocol. The digestive tract from the esophagus to the large intestine can be radiographically evaluated by administering contrast medium orally. The term UGI upper gastrointestinal tract contrast study is a misnomer in birds because the colon, and occasionally the cloaca, is also evaluated on these studies....

Positioning Technique For The Ventrodorsal Radiographic Study Of The Avian Coelom

Avian Radiography Wing Caudocranial View

Precut strips of paper tape, as described for the laterolateral radiographic study of the coelom, are prepared. For the ventrodorsal projection, the bird is placed on the positioning device in dorsal recumbency. The neck is placed in the guillotine and the head is adjusted to the straight rostrocaudal position. Further gentle traction is applied to the bird's body by extending the pelvic limbs slightly caudally and securing them with gauze to the positioning device's cleats. The wings are fully...

Positioning Techniques For Laterolateral And Ventrodorsal Radiographic Studies Of The Avian Head

Radiographic studies of the head include laterolateral and ventro-dorsal radiographic projections and, when necessary, oblique views. Small wedges of radiolucent foam may be of assistance for precise positioning of the head. For laterolateral and oblique projections, the patient is placed in a lateral recumbent position. Oblique radiographic projections require rotation of 15 to 30 degrees or less off the straight lateral projection. Oblique projections are described by the point of entrance of...

Positioning Devices

For production of the images for this text, smaller birds i.e., less than 100 grams body weight were positioned directly on the radiographic cassette and secured with masking tape, but an acrylic positioning device Bird Board, 8205 Alba Ct., Citrus Heights, Calif. was used to facilitate positioning of larger birds. Many avian positioning devices are commercially available. If positioning devices are interposed between the bird and the film or digital sensor, a small increase in kVp 2-4 kVp may...
