A creditable exposition is made of the basic principles of roentgen-ray absorption necessary for the treatment of deep lying malignancy by short wave rays. Filtration tables and absorption diagrams after the general plan of Dessauer are given. Individual chapters are devoted to the physical principles underlying the treatment of carcinoma of the breast, rectum and uterus. Two short chapters deal with the castration dose and with carcinoma of the larynx.
