The author addresses two hundred and twenty-eight pages on general roentgen-ray diagnosis to the surgeon, practitioner and student. The subject matter is systematic, up to date, and covers a wide scope. The intention is to give short discussions on the many phases of roentgen-ray diagnosis, rather than an exhaustive review of any one. From this point of view the book shows admirable balance and a wealth of experience on the part of the author.
The book is profusely illustrated with well selected roentgenograms. An attempt has been made to illustrate the important and typical lesions as far as possible and to omit the rare and bizarre. This makes it especially valuable for the student and general practitioner.
