The second edition of this treatise on roentgen anatomy and positioning is clearly designed for the physician, not for the x-ray technician. There has been added even more diagnostic material, and descriptions of technical procedures, which should be performed only by a physician, are a prominent feature. In an admirably concise style the author describes such relatively new x-ray methods as fluorography, body section roentgenography and cholangiography. The present edition also contains a section on fluoroscopy with particular attention to the dangers of this procedure. The methods of fluoroscopic localization of foreign bodies are well described. Pineal localization, pelvic and cephalic measurements, roentgen kymography and bronchography are treated in some detail. The additions and changes have increased the utility of the book. Its greatest value lies in the accurate manner in which x-ray positioning of all anatomic parts is described and illustrated.
