The arrangement of the material in this valuable contribution is excellent; the descriptive matter relative to the technic of radium applications is accurate and complete. Some few methods and applicators described are quite different from those commonly employed in America. The precautions to be observed in connection with radium treatments are enlarged on freely. While the author does not include all diseases for which radium might be used, he considers satisfactorily those most commonly observed by the radium therapeutist. A compact list of references is given, which is preferable to the induction of references throughout the reading material. This may be considered a comprehensive treatise on the use of radium and might well be in the library of every physician.
