Abstract

Whenever a reviewer says a new book fills a definite need, he should immediately be looked upon with the suspicion he has no ability to use anything more than hackneyed phrases and no energy to truly tell much about the book.

This is a two-volume work which is comprehensive, detailed, and generally excellent. The photographs are ample in number and high in quality. Appropriate introductory chapters on historical aspects, contrast media, equipment, anatomy, physiology, and pathology are to be appreciated.
