As the title indicates, this brochure is devoted to a discussion of the theoretical bases and potentialities of roentgen depiction of soft tissues. Essentially, then, it gives an exposition of principles rather than a specific description of practical technics. It deals with the physical, physiologic and geometric factors which enter into roentgenography of soft parts and thus suggests methods by which favoring elements can be fostered and hindering elements can be combated. The reader who is confident in his understanding of the German language and is familiar with mathematical, geometric and trigonometrical formulas will find the book worth while, but the roentgenologist who has forgotten his academic training or the technician who is looking for ready-made technics is likely to find it disappointing.
