This book represents a careful and detailed study of bronchial anatomy as it is manifested roentgenographically. The techniques of conventional film study of the lungs, body section study, and principally bronchography are used to evaluate the anatomical features of the bronchi.

Following a review of previous studies of bronchial anatomy and of the various systems of nomenclature, there is a general evaluation of the form and characteristics of the bronchi.

The remainder of the book, 110 pages, is devoted to a well-presented discussion of the roentgenographic anatomy of the bronchi. The origin, variations, course, characteristics, vascular relations, x-ray demonstration, and nomenclatures of each segmental division are discussed and illustrated. The figures throughout are of high quality and excellently supplement the text.

While there is little in this text that is new, it does represent a thorough and accurate presentation of its subject. It will be useful to those who find
