The purpose of this book (which might be subtitled "What Every Radiologist Knows") is to survey the usefulness and limitations of the roentgenographic examinations available for study of different organ systems, and to recommend those believed to be appropriate or their alternatives, if there is a choice. The book is written for doctors' helpers, medical students, general physicians, and nonradiologic specialists. The first three might profit from reading this survey.
Perhaps the nonradiologic specialist also could find something of interest in this slim, relatively inexpensive paperback, provided that he was uncertain of what the indications and alternatives were, or he wished to update his knowledge.
