This book is an account of Barclay's work at the Nuffield Institute of Medical Research, Oxford, in which he adapts and develops radiological techniques for use in the experimental laboratory. Particular attention is given, in an autobiographical nature, to the development of micro-arteriography. This book will be read with great interest by investigators interested in laboratory techniques intended for visualization of the vascular system.

The illustrations are deserving of a special commendation. These illustrations alone, showing micro-arteriographs of sections of a rabbit's kidney, the mucous membrane of the stomach, an arteriogram of the arterial supply of the testes of the Danna Wallaby, and others, should be of particular interest to the anatomist and physiologist. Because of the highly specialized nature of the techniques developed, this book will be utilized and appreciated mostly by those investigators concerned with visualizing the vascular system.
