The author has contrived to put into this little handbook a readable and comprehensive discussion of gastrointestinal radiology. The illustrations are exceptionally well done and are grouped in such a way that several roentgenograms illustrative of an individual case are presented side by side on the same page, thus facilitating comparison. The reader is made to appreciate that in the gastrointestinal tract fluoroscopy is an important adjunct of the x-ray examination, offering as one of its chief advantages the opportunity to make "aimed" roentgenograms, sometimes spoken of as "spot films." The author and the publisher have succeeded admirably in the production of a useful handbook covering the digestive tube and the biliary tract.
