This monograph is an answer to frequently repeated requests for information dealing with the production of medical motion pictures on 16 mm. film. It is written especially for the amateur and covers all the necessary details concerning the preparation of the "scenario" (i. e., what should be included and what omitted), the kind of lenses, focusing, lights, filters, supporting the camera, speed, editing and titling. There is a discussion of animated motion pictures, the use of sound and cinemicroscopy. Frequent reference is made to the methods employed by different physicians in solving particular problems, and a bibliography is given of some of the more important articles dealing with medical motion pictures.
