This is the first systematic presentation in any language of a method of diagnosis of kidney and ureteral affections, to which Voelker first called attention ten years ago. The author deplores the unjust condemnation of the method because of the deaths following its employment in a few cases. The majority of these ill effects were due to the use of too much force in injecting the solutions into the upper urinary tract. The book is based on the experience of the author in 2,000 cases, and the absence of any complication in this large number of pyelograms is the strongest argument for the gravity method which he employs. The numerous excellent roentgenograms show that pyelography is an almost indispensable diagnostic aid in renal and ureteral lesions. A careful study of the book is recommended to those interested in urologic as well as in general abdominal conditions.
