"Radium Dosage," by Meredith, is a detailed presentation from the Manchester group of its system of radiation therapy. Particular reference is made to procedures for calculation of dose. The material is exceedingly complete and highly technical, exceeding considerably in its precision the predictability of location of the disease to be treated.

This work is a tribute to the patience and thoroughness of the Manchester School of Radiation Therapy, as well as to the clinical applicability of biophysics to therapy.
