This brief monograph on roentgenologic examination of the urinary organs was intended as a textbook and as a guide to interpretation of urographic deformities caused by lesions in this tract. As the authors state, the circle of those interested would include not only urologists, but roentgenologists, internists, and various surgical specialists. The monograph contains only 323 illustrations, including drawings, abstract sketches, roentgenograms, and urograms. They portray the usual deformities seen with lesions in the urinary tract. The book is not a complete atlas of such deformities. It contains clinical discussions with most of the urograms, which take up a large part of the book, and offers additional information of questionable value to the main subject. While the text is written in an interesting and readable manner, it adds comparatively little to our present knowledge of the subject.
