This slim but attractive little volume consists of 239 pages. Included are ten pages of index and six pages of bibliography (the latter is incomplete). There are eight chapters on neuroradiological anatomy, entitled "Neuroanatomy," "Pneumoencephalography and Ventriculography," "Ventricular System," "Subarachnoid Spaces," "Cerebral Angiography," "Arterial Supply of the Brain," "Venous Drainage of the Brain," and "Radiologic Illusions."
