This book is the fourteenth volume of a series of works on roentgenologic subjects under the title of Practical Radiology. Accordingly to the preface, by Dessauer, this series is a revival or continuation of an arbeit which he and Wiesner had produced in the series of special works on roentgenologic subjects, a revision of which was interrupted by the onset of the World War. The authors of this book have taken up the subject and have dealt with the physical and technical aspects of roentgenology in a thorough manner. The book is replete with detail that deserves most favorable comment. It is divided into three principal parts: the physics of roentgen rays, roentgen apparatus, and roentgen and other vacuum tubes. Were this work translated into English it would be welcomed by American roentgenologists and others interested in the physics and related phases of roentgen rays, their production and technical use.
