In this monograph the author describes and illustrates the urethrocystographic findings in men. The material consists of normal and pathologic cases. The normal material consists of 21 urethrocystographies and the pathologic of 216. The findings obtained by injecting the urethra and bladder with contrast mediums through the external urethral orifice are compared with the roentgenograms obtained during the act of micturition. The book is well written and the subject matter presented in a systematic manner. The author begins with a careful survey of the literature. Then follows an anatomic and physiologic survey. In his discussion of the technic he also calls attention to the possible complications. The illustrations are clearcut and are faithful reproductions. The wide variety of lesions studied permits the author to arrive at certain conclusions regarding micturition. The reproductions of the cystourethrograms during micturition are all that could be desired and are exceedingly interesting and instructive. Apparently
