This book deals with the roentgen examination of the base of the skull and micro-fractures of the petrous bone.
In the first two chapters the author presents the conventional as well as his own methods of the routine examination of the base of the skull. He delineates the various structures, sinuses, and foramina by roentgen photographs and line drawings. The various techniques include those of Hirtz, Stenvers, Shullers, Mayers, and his own intrabuccal magnification procedures.
The third and fourth chapters deal with micro-fractures of the petrous bone. The technique employed is usually influenced by the symptomology. The author's special magnification technique is usually supplemental to these procedures, particularly when it is difficult to demonstrate a fracture by other means.
The photographs and the line drawings are well presented and augment the text. There is an ample bibliography. This is a valuable book for the radiologist, otolaryngologist, neurologist, psychiatrist, neurosurgeon, and
