Using iodized oil and the methods of hysterosalpingography, Béclère made a detailed study of the permeability and obstructions of the fallopian tubes in forty-four cases of sterility and seventy cases of salpingitis. The results, as well as those of previous studies, are presented and discussed in this monograph. The roentgenograms obtained are correlated with the gross and microscopic changes of the surgically removed specimens, with the etiologic factors, and with the clinical picture of the disease. Three technical points are especially emphasized. The pressure under which the iodized oil is injected must be measured by a manometer in order that diminished permeability may be noted. Injections must be made under the fluoroscope so that the shape, size and contractions of the tubes, as well as droplet formation, may be observed. A film must be made twenty-four hours later in order to prove permeability by peritoneal diffusion of the oil, or
