The first half of this book, "The Radiologic Examination of the Petrous Portion of the Temporal Bone," is written by Wesley E. Compere, Jr., MD, associate clinical professor of surgery (otolaryngology) at the University of Southern California School of Medicine. It consists of four chapters, including "Radiologic Signs of Petrosal Disease, Absorptive or Destructive Manifestations"; "The Mastoid Process and Tympanic Cavity"; "Eustachian Tube"; and "Techniques."

Galdino Valvassori, a radiologist who has pioneered and contributed most of the original work on temporal bone laminography in this country, has written the second half of the atlas. It includes "Normal Roentgenographic Anatomy"; "Pathologic Conditions of the Ear"; "Inflammatory Processes"; "Neoplastic Conditions"; and "Otosclerosis—Pre-and Postoperative Evaluation."

More editing prior to publication would have made this a more valuable book; nevertheless, it represents a worthwhile contribution and is highly recommended.
