This is a radiologic study of the anatomy, physiology and pathology of the digestive tract. There are also several chapters on technic. The text is written clearly. The illustrations are numerous; especially is this true of the normal position of the viscera seen on fluoroscopic and plate examination. One, therefore, will be able to detect deviations from the normal. The book is to be recommended as a useful one for the office or the laboratory.
