This book describes in detail the techniques of autoradiography as applied to biology and medicine. The last book on the subject was published by G. A. Boyd in 1955, and the progress made by autoradiography in the past 12 years has been such as to make Boyd's book obsolete. In the circumstances, the effort of Dr. Rogers is welcomed by all investigators using autoradiography to study life processes.

The book includes 18 chapters dealing variously with both the theory and practice of autoradiography. A description of nuclear emulsions and of the photographic process is given in readable form, and after treating the problem of autoradiographic resolution and efficiency, Dr. Rogers describes in more detail some of the techniques in use. These include the dip-coating technique, the stripping-film technique, and autoradiography with the electron microscope. Two subjects are treated in more detail than can be found in articles or chapters dealing
