The author, one of the pioneers in roentgenology, issued this little book as a guide to enable the beginner to determine the roentgen-ray dosage suited to the treatment of a given case. The basis for a scientific and exact selection of the dose is furnished by the recognition of the paramount importance of the dispersion rays and by the introduction into the roentgenologic practice of the measuring of the wave length. In order to simplify the choice of the dose, the author classifies all conditions to be treated in four groups: The first, requiring extreme doses, is represented by carcinoma; the second is the group that needs strong, but not extreme, irradiation; the third group requires only a medium strong dose, and the fourth group requires only weak irradiation. The necessary measuring for the construction of the various intensities was performed with the help of the intensimeter, the radiometer and
