By combining roentgenograms, schematic drawings, and terse case summaries with observations and comments based on broad clinical experience, the author has realized his stated aim to produce a volume primarily for radiologist and radiologist trainee and useful to both pediatrician and pediatric surgeon. A great deal of highly pertinent material which deals with the radiologic aspects of gastrointestinal situations solely or primarily encountered in infancy is presented. This is arranged in seven anatomic subdivisions. Commendable brevity has been achieved, with no sacrifice of important content material and no compromise with clarity of discussion. The various developmental faults responsible for sometimes fatal and often obscure alimentary difficulties are particularly well presented and documented. By the avoidance of repetitive discourses on subjects that are not peculiar to infants, the pediatric keynote has been preserved throughout each subdivision. The outstanding excellence of literary content is matched by similar stellar performance by the publishers.
