This paper reviews our experience in the use of arterial and precordial indicator dilution curves inscribed in over 500 cardiac patients. It also presents some of the newer developments in theoretical aspects and experimental studies concerning indicator dilution technic in the diagnosis of various types of cardiovascular lesions.
In congenital heart disease, within certain limitations, the indicator dilution curve is reliable to detect left-to-right shunts and to localize right-to-left shunts. Patterns of the indicator dilution curves in various types of valvular heart disease may be predicted with reasonable accuracy according to the nature, site, and degree of the lesion and
