Since the discovery of the Roentgen rays a new specialty accessory to medicine has arisen. While not every physician can master all the facts and details required for a thorough knowledge of the subject, the practical features of skiascopy so far as they relate to medicine and surgery are particularly well summarized in the present volume. The fact that it has gone through two editions is sufficient evidence of its having met a need. Recent as this publication is, it is necessarily a little behind the time in such a progressive specialty as this department of electric science. A number of recent publications have appeared which contain facts that might well have been included, but on the whole we know of no better book as a compendium of the present knowledge.
