This is a special treatise on the part that the x-rays play in examinations of the region of the neck. This is a region in which the average x-ray film is not usually considered as of great value other than determining the condition of the cervical vertebrae. The author proves in text and illustrations that there is far more help to be gained by adequate roentgen studies of this anatomic region than is usually considered possible. This book, which is the ninth of a series of monographic atlases on x-ray subjects, is of the same high order of authorship and illustrative material as its predecessors. The roentgenographic appearances of normal and pathologic states of various tissues and structures of the neck are admirably presented and the book is a highly instructing work.
