This book is based on 3,096 publications, which are cited in 109 pages of bibliography. It contains 72 pages of text and 92 pages of tables. The text is concise and gives up-to-date information about the doses of roentgen and nuclear rays, including their therapeutic uses.

The short chapters on the effect of radiation on man and animals make rewarding reading for any physician who looks for a brushing up in this field.

The clinical, hematological, and pathological results of all degrees of damage caused by nuclear and x-ray radiations are enumerated and described in sufficient detail without being repetitious.

The radiologist will quickly obtain up-to-date facts and figures from the intelligible tables, and he will find quite a repertory of the present world literature about the topic in the bibliography.
