  1. Francisco Llabres Diaz

    Francisco Llabres Diaz graduated from the University of Zaragoza, Spain, in 1996. After a brief period in practice in Spain, he moved to the Animal Health Trust, Newmarket. In 2005, he joined Davies Veterinary Specialists in Hertfordshire. He holds the RCVS certificate and diploma in veterinary radiology, the European diploma in veterinary diagnostic imaging, and is an RCVS recognised specialist in veterinary diagnostic imaging. He is the current chairman of the British and Irish Division of the European Association of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging.


THIS final article in the series on contrast radiography describes how to conduct vascular and articular studies, dacryocystorhinography, sinography and lymphangiography. In each case, only those techniques routinely performed in practice are discussed. Procedures that are difficult to perform and interpret, require specialist equipment, or have largely been superseded by advanced imaging techniques such as ultrasonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging ‐ all of which are now quite widely available ‐ will not be considered.
