Formerly published in three volumes, in 1939, this work has been rewritten and expanded into four volumes, so divided that they may be utilized separately by readers interested in radiology of limited areas or systems. This volume, titled "Head and Neck," embraces the central nervous system, including the spinal cord, the teeth and jaws, the eyes, the accessory nasal sinuses, and the temporal bone. Like the companion volumes, it is outstanding in its completeness, is interestingly written, beautifully and adequately illustrated, and detailed in its coverage of anatomy, physiology, pathology, radiographic technique, and interpretation of radiological findings.
The section on the central nervous system occupies more than half the volume. In addition to radiography of the cranium, ventriculography, encephalography, and cerebral angiography are thoroughly discussed and illustrated. The chapter on the spinal cord is well illustrated, and discussion of technique and interpretation of myelography is adequate.
