Angiographie der Nieren, by Erich Vogler and Rudolph Herbst, is the result of the collaboration of a radiologist and a urologist in the performance of five hundred arteriograms. This small but excellent volume presents the subject in a very thorough manner and shows the results of great experience and the development of precision techniques.

The authors employ special x-ray equipment which permits exposures of one-tenth to one-twenty-fifth of a second, and automatic cassette changers which make it possible to take twelve to fourteen exposures at one-half-second intervals. This makes it possible to demonstrate the circulation of the radiopaque medium in its arterial, intermediate, and venous phases and greatly enhances the diagnostic possibilities of the method.

The authors employ a special cannula which permits easy penetration of the aortic lumen without the danger of perforation of the opposite wall.

The illustrations are superb. This is the finest monograph upon the subject
