This book from the pen of Dr. Buckstein is welcome. It is not simply another book; it is a real contribution in which the personal observations of the author add greatly to the value of the review of the literature. This is a fair and well balanced presentation of gastrointestinal radiology, including not only the digestive tube but the biliary tract, spleen, liver and pancreas. The illustrations are well chosen and nicely reproduced. It is gratifying to find so much attention paid to the small intestine. It may be offered as a slight criticism that, since the author refers rather liberally to the literature, he might have done it somewhat more accurately. It seems a bit strange that in a six hundred page book on gastrointestinal roentgenology listing some eight or nine hundred names in the bibliographic index one finds the name of Carman referred to only twice.
