This monograph also appears under the title "Die Röntgenstereoskopie" in Abderhalden, Handbuch der biologischer Arbeitsmethoden, Abt. II, Teil 3 (Lfg. 408). The importance of the stereogram in roentgen diagnosis cannot be overestimated. Unfortunately, most works on stereoscopy are too technical, too elementary or too specialized on some variety of apparatus or on some procedure to be of general interest. The present monograph, therefore, tends to fill a wide gap in roentgenologic literature. In it the authors discuss the optical fundamentals, both theoretical and technical, of stereovision, especially in its roentgenologic aspects. Representative types of apparatus are discussed in some detail to emphasize the structural and stereographic peculiarities of the roentgen stereoscope in general. The most important sources of error are outlined, important hints are given as to how to utilize roentgen stereoscopy to its greatest advantage, and lines of future development are indicated. An extensive bibliography of twenty-two pages closes
