This treatise is the fifty-seventh of a series of monographs issued as supplements to the Zeitschrift für Tuberkulose and is devoted to a consideration of the value and limitations of roentgenology in the diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis as revealed not only by serial x-ray studies but also by correlating the shadows noted on chest films with the pathologic changes disclosed by frontal sections of the lungs. The twentysix pages of text included in the monograph present excellent discussions dealing with the roentgenologic identification of calcified and noncalcified old (primary?) foci of disease, the early nodule and the early infiltration of pulmonary tuberculosis of the adult type, the possibility of roentgenographically identifying the pathologic condition present, the prognosis, extent and course of the disease, the technic of roentgen examinations and other pertinent topics of importance. The illustrations have been selected with great care and show all desired details distinctly. This
