The technique of angiography has been so improved and simplified that visualization of the cerebral blood vessels is now a routine in all cases in which an organic intracranial disorder, such a tumor, aneurysm, or hematoma, is suspected. Ophthalmologists are particularly concerned with the cerebral blood vessels and will find this book of considerable value. The knowledge of normal angiographic anatomy is a prerequisite to the understanding of angiograms and pathologic conditions, and this work is designed primarily to provide a background for the interpretation of abnormal cerebral angiograms.

The book is divided into two parts. Part I deals with the technique and complications. The portion on the latter should be read by all ophthalmologists before referring patients for this procedure. Part II concerns angiographic anatomy and illustrates the normal cerebral angiograms and the common artifacts. Of special interest to ophthalmologists are the following topics:

1. A method of surveying
