Abstract : A radiographic reference atlas of the California sea lion complete with an evaluation of techniques for all of the standard positions was developed. Photographs and drawings of the normal radiographic anatomy are presented. The radiographic technique has been one of the most useful diagnostic aids available to the clinician. It is particularly valuable for use with the California sea lion because of the limited availability of diagnostic techniques practically applicable to this species. The satisfactory radiographic examination is facilitated by standardized techniques and by an awareness on the part of the observer of anatomic peculiarities of the sea lion. It is the intention of this brief atlas to provide technical data and useful illustrations as an aid to a meaningful examination.
