The author states in the preface that the roentgen study of pregnancy is fulfilling an everyday need which he claims is easily as important as the need for other major roentgen studies, such as those of the respiratory, the gastrointestinal and the urinary tract. He has prepared this book as a short text by which to make the clinical roentgenology of pregnancy more generally useful.
The seven chapters begin, by way of introduction, with a general discussion of the use of the roentgen ray in pregnancy. There is a good deal here to interest the internist.
Five following chapters deal with the more strictly technical aspects of the book's subject. The last chapter comprises case reports: On one page are roentgenograms, and on the opposite page are short case summaries, which describe exactly the manner in which each roentgenogram is to be interpreted in connection with the given history.
