This excerpt has been provided in the absence of an abstract.

Chapters on the history, definition and action, and production of x-rays and radium form the introductory material of this book. The last mentioned chapter contains numerous interesting photographs, which are not, however, apropos to the main thesis of the book. Applied x-ray physics then furnishes the necessary background for the discussion of dosage. The remainder of the book is a description of radiation therapy as practiced at Bellevue Hospital. This portion is excellently illustrated and the pictures are largely left to tell their own story as to the various devices to be employed. The reader must constantly bear in mind
