This book analyzes the complex shadows seen in the postoperative roentgenogram. It is one of a series of books commemorating the late John Alexander. The material was selected from over 300 cases and is classified as to roentgenographic appearance into the following categories: soft tissues, foreign bodies, ribs, diaphragm, mediastinum, pleural cavity, lungs, and complications. Each illustration is accompanied by an explanatory schematic drawing. The authors recommend a relatively high voltage technique with a stationary grid when possible. The form of presentation is that of an atlas with concise but adequate legends. This book offers a reasonably complete analysis of the chest in post-operative situations as demonstrated on roentgenograms and should be most helpful to physicians interested in chest diseases. It is also recommended to radiologists and thoracic surgeons.
