Bazzano suspends the child in a special cloth bolster, which allows one to make exceptionally clear roentgenograms of the thorax. He illustrates all types of pneumonia with both anterior-posterior and transverse views, which together give an excellent idea of the process. Cavities that are doubtful in an anterior-posterior view, are plainly shown in this method by a transverse view. The book is in Spanish, but this should not deter the reader, for roentgenograms are universal when they are well done.
