ABSTRACT

This is the American edition of the book published in Berlin in 1935. It is divided into five parts, the first part being devoted to the action of roentgen rays and radium rays on different tissues, the second part to the action of the corpuscular rays, the third part to the action of ultraviolet rays, the fourth part to the action of visible light and the fifth part to general radiation biology and therapy.

For any one such as an internist, surgeon or radiologist who wants to have available a brief textbook on the biologic action of different radiations, together with an extensive bibliography of the subject, this is the book. However, for those who want more detailed information this work would be rather too brief. Therefore for radiologists who really want to know how rays act on certain tissues a definite and satisfactory answer would probably not be found.
