This monograph is an authoritative presentation of the physiology and pathology of the cardiovascular system. It is viewed from the roentgenologic aspect by a cardiologist with a wealth of clinical experience and material.
The text describes technic, apparatus and findings of the most acceptable methods in roentgenoscopy, fluoroscopy, orthodiagraphy, roentgenography, cinematography, kymography and vasography. Interpretations include etiologic factors and differential diagnoses.
The organization of the subjects is such that reference may readily be made to detail of technical methods; correlation from different aspects; interrelationships of heart, vessels, lungs, diaphragm and the thoracic cage in the dynamics of blood flow and respiration, and discussions of changes in cardiac, concomitant pulmonary, aortic, pericardial, pulmonic and peripheral vascular diseases. Each chapter is replete with excellent illustrations, diagrams, electrocardiograms, medical histories, clinical courses, in many instances covering a long course of years, postmortem data and an extensive bibliography.
The book is invaluable in adding
