Radiographic Atlas of the Human Skull: Normal Variants and Pseudo-Lesions, by Gerhardt S. Schwartz and Charles R. Golthamer (trilingual ed), Axel Neiss and Carlos E. Parera Simonet (trans.), n p, New York: Hafner Publishing Co., 1965.

As the name suggests, Principles of X-ray Diagnosis of the Skull deals with principles of diagnosis and does not include the classic basic approach of standard views with numerical identification of structures, etc. The book is directed at those who have basic knowledge of general radiology.

The traditional neuroradiological approach is used, with chapters on the vault, the base, the sella, and intracranial calcification. There are separate chapters on facial bones and the nasopharynx, raised intracranial pressures, head injuries, and radiography. Illustrations are of good quality, and the captions are lengthy and specific. The author's own original observations are included and noted as such when they differ from those usually accepted.
