The Spinal Cord, by H. Vakili, 360 pp, 263 illus, New York: Intercontinental Medical Book Corp., 1967.
These two books in neuroradiology are topographically complementary since one is restricted to the skull and brain and the other to the spinal column and cord. Both acknowledge their debt to the Seraphimer Hospital in Sweden and specifically to Eric Lindgren.
