This book is an atlas of thirty-three full page plates made up of halftone reproductions of the mastoid, taken in health and in disease. The author brings to this work a knowledge based on extensive experience as a roentgenologist, and as a practicing otologist. In his long experience in the Manhattan Hospital, he has had an exceptional opportunity for following cases to the operating room, and in this way accumulating an extensive background in experience for the intelligent interpretation of roentgen observations.
The volume will serve as a valuable guide to the practicing otologist in undertaking to evaluate x-ray pictures of the mastoid.
The author emphasizes that final judgment of a case can usually be reached only by cooperation between the otologist and the roentgenologist. He also brings out that, for practical purposes, a single film will furnish the needed data, thus rendering unnecessary stereoptican films.
