This book consists of a brief descriptive text, well illustrated, followed by a series of fifty-four additional illustrations. The text begins with a chapter on technic and points of especial value in the roentgen-ray examination of the digestive tract in children. Short notes and illustrations of esophageal atresia, stenosis and cardiospasm complete the second chapter. Following this, two chapters take up conditions of the stomach and intestinal tract. Pyloric spasm and stenosis are clearly illustrated. A chapter headed "Influence of Posture on Digestion" proves to be a consideration of the gas bubble in the stomach and its location on change of position in an infant. One is impressed with the need of a more complete series of roentgen-ray observations of the digestive tract of infants and children based on a consideration of age, habitus and posture. Chapters on hernia of the diaphragm, tuberculous peritonitis, transposition of the viscera, abdominal tumors
