These two books are part of a complete presentation of the x-ray applications in the diagnosis of lesions of the digestive tract. Preceding volumes in the series deal with the stomach and the duodenum. The volumes now appearing cover the esophagus, small and large intestine, the pancreas and associated gland structures. This is a large work not only in size of book but also in magnitude of detail. The subject is presented in atlas form and the large illustrations are particularly acceptable to the reader. One may make most favorable comment on the illuminating line diagrams of the x-ray illustrations; these diagrams leave little to be desired as explanatory data. Seldom does one encounter such a wealth of material. Various common and many uncommon and rare lesions are illustrated and described in detail, affording the reader an unusual opportunity to see atypical phases of x-ray values in such cases.
