This supplement deals with the roentgen examination of the soft tissues of the extremities, without use of contrast media. It includes an analysis and survey of the technical factors involved in producing good soft tissue images. The sources of lack of clarity in the roentgen image are discussed. A number of the author's experimental findings are explained in detail and suggestions for filming are outlined. The reproductions of the roentgenograms are good, especially considering that the soft tissue image is of main interest. This is an interesting exposition of the factors involved in this type of radiography. The book is well written and is a good reference on the subject.
