Disguised behind this preposterous title one finds an excellent discussion of cardiovascular roentgenology. Most of the material is accessible in scattered textbooks on cardiology and roentgenology but, as Polevski points out, there is no short book in English in which the subject is taken up in monographic form. An outstanding feature is the large number of good reproductions of roentgenograms around which the text is built; the exposition is clear and the style pleasant. Perhaps Polevski goes a bit far when he states (preface, p. 4) that "a careful fluoroscopic examination is almost equivalent to dissection in vivo," but, on the other hand, it is only fair to say that most physicians do not fully appreciate the detailed information which can be gleaned from careful roentgen study of the heart and aorta. There are a good bibliography and an index.
