This handsomely printed and profusely illustrated book, joint product of physician and radiologist, emphasizes especially the value of the x-ray in diseases of the chest. There are over 200 reproductions of roentgenograms, and the text is really built around these. Although "Diseases of the Chest" is not exactly a textbook, the thoracologist can hardly afford to be without a compendium of this sort.
