The Year Book Publishers have embarked on the manufacture of a series of short handbooks dealing with roentgenologic diagnosis. This volume, which is listed as sixth in the series, considers the urinary tract. It is a workmanlike affair copiously illustrated with excellent reproductions of films. There are four major divisions of the subject matter: the kidney, the ureter, the bladder and the urethra. The text describes these anatomic units from a radiologist's point of view, describing first what is considered their normal visualization and then various deviations from the normal.
On pages opposite to the text are reproduced characteristic roentgenograms, which illustrate with delightful clarity the points in the text that appear to deserve greatest emphasis.
The book is so clearly written that it is easily read, and the illustrations are particularly good. On the whole, this small handbook is bound to be a popular adjunct to any hospital library.
