This imposing atlas takes up in great detail the roentgenographic and anatomic bases of examination of the lungs. The printing is excellently done on good paper, and the illustrations are beautifully reproduced. Only about one-half of the illustrations are reproduced as negatives. Many explanatory drawings accompany the roentgenograms, aiding materially in the interpretation of the findings. The text discusses the correlation between the roentgenographic and anatomic bases for interpreting the various roentgen shadows. The bronchial system and the various pulmonary segments are extensively described with reference to topographic anatomy and nomenclature, special attention being given to the lingula. The vascular structures of the lungs and bronchi are fully discussed, and a number of roentgenograms of anatomic preparations are carefully analyzed. The authors have made extensive use of tomography, which they consider an indispensable part of the roentgen examination of the lungs. Careful instruction is given in the technical phases of
