The authors stress that their monograph emphasizes the application of arteriography in a community hospital. They demonstrate that in a general hospital with limited equipment angiography of good quality can be performed if a skilled physician undertakes such studies. After a brief review of equipment and techniques of arteriography, they discuss aortography, selective arteriography of the branches of the aorta, and peripheral and cerebral arteriography; and, finally, a short description is given of postmortem angiographic techniques. It is clearly stated that more complicated angiographic procedures—as, for instance, coronary angiography—should not be performed in a small hospital but should be undertaken
