Cardiac, catheterization and angiocardiography are two methods which are being widely used for the investigation of acquired and congenital heart disease. Since both of these procedures entail some risk to the patient, the Scientific Council of the American Heart Association deemed it advisable to establish a committee to evaluate this risk and to recommend methods to minimize it.
