This is an ideal textbook for undergraduate medical students. The authors have adhered to their original system of presenting the material, a system which provides the student with an opportunity to develop a sound basic understanding of medical radiology. The diagnostic and therapeutic considerations have been amplified and strengthened, and this volume continues to be one of the best available to medical students. The experienced radiologist, likewise, should derive much worthwhile knowledge and assistance from it. This volume is invaluable for anyone interested in this type of treatment even though he may refer his patients for radiological investigation and therapy. To those not practicing radiology, this book provides a background in radiology, and familiarity with its contents should improve the standards of consultation. The end-result is likely to be better treatment for the patient. This book is most acceptable from the standpoint of the type and illustrations.
