The purpose of this book is to present in one volume principles of photography and specific information with regard to photography as applied to medicine. The chapter on color photography has been revised extensively, and additions have been made to other sections in order to bring the material up-to-date. This book will be of greatest value to the clinical photographer who has had limited experience in the field. The physician would appreciate a more concise volume with less emphasis on fundamental principles of photography and more material on simple procedures, such as for making pictures of patients or gross specimens, copying x-rays, and preparing photomicrographs. Almost 250 pages are devoted to radiographic technique, which is of little or no interest to the clinical photographer or the average physician.
