As stated in the preface this book is chiefly concerned with encephalographic anatomy. It remains the outstanding work in this field, brief and easily readable. The addition of planigraphy has aided considerably in clarifying the anatomy of midline structures. There is little change in the organization of the material. Additional excellent illustrations have been included, and the bibliography is more extensive.

Under "General Considerations" are grouped history, indications and contraindications for encephalography, technique of encephalography, roentgen technique, and reactions to encephalography, Following are separate chapters, entitled "The Ventricles, Interventricular Foramina and Aqueduct of Sylvius," "The Cerebral Convolutions and Sulci," "The Subarachnoid Cisterns and Their Contents," and "Intracranial Structures and Their Related Fluid Spaces." This last chapter is of particular value in correlating certain solid structures with the overlying and adjacent air shadows as seen on the roentgenogram.
