This is a little handbook on radiographic positioning, of such size as to fit into the pocket of a coat or gown and intended to serve as a ready reference book for standard radiographic positions. For details of technic of special x-ray examinations the reader is referred to more elaborate books. The illustrations are diagrammatic, only the main structures and outlines being given. In view of the needs of these war days, considerable space is devoted to positions required in the x-ray localization of foreign bodies. In perusing this work one finds little to criticize. It is not a pretentious publication, but it serves well for the purpose intended and should be valuable for radiographic technicians.
