This is an English translation of an excellent handbook meant primarily to instruct the general practitioner by outlining the indications for roentgen-ray therapy, and secondarily for the roentgenologist by providing him with a definite and proved scheme for the treatment of diseases by roentgen rays. The book is arranged in two sections. In the first section the mode of action of roentgen rays, effects of treatment, including the various reactions, prognosis and adjuvant treatment, are considered in a clear, concise and practical manner. The second section concerns itself with the use of roentgen rays as the therapeutic agent of choice in some sixty selected diseases. These are arranged alphabetically and a brief statement concerning the mode of action, reactions, course, duration and result of treatment is made for each. The formulas are all in terms of the Holzknecht unit, which detracts from the value of the book to the specialist
