This is one of a collection of monographs published under the auspices of the Dr. J. B. Morelli Institute of Tuberculosis of the Faculty of Medicine of Montevideo. Much valuable radiologic research has been done in the University of Montevideo. The findings in the present research do not suggest any need of change in our conceptions of the anatomic divisions of the lung and their landmarks as seen on the roentgenograms. The numerous interesting cases reported and illustrated by anatomic and radiographic demonstrations emphasize the fact that the postoperative result of pleuropulmonary surgical operations is in great part dependent on correct topographic and etiologic diagnosis. An understanding of the bronchial system is of the greatest importance. For this the author uses bronchography, with screen and film studies in multiple positions.
