This excellent book was inspired, according to the author's preface, by a visit to the United States, where he visited laboratories and libraries and had access to information then still unknown in France. The information so gained has been thoroughly assimilated and clearly set forth. The first part deals with fundamental theory and technic. The second part discusses the use of the radioactive isotopes as tracers in clinical diagnosis, and the third discusses them as sources of ionizing radiations in therapy. The author has a gift for compact, precise expression, and the book will be useful to biologic and medical investigators everywhere. The appendix includes a selected list of biologically useful isotopes. The book lacks an index.
