Graphic, three-dimensional representation of actual pathologic lesions can be correlated with a high degree of accuracy with electrocardiographic changes indicating abnormalities in the major conducting tissues. By integrating two methods of anatomic-pathologic study, reconstruction of the atrioventricular node, common bundle, and major bundle branches with scaled representation is possible. The first technique involves a study of the vascular anatomy of the interventricular septum by injections of barium-gelatin mixtures and using enlarged photographs of X rays of the region of the atrioventricular node. The second technique uses scanning of continuous serial sections through the conducting tissue taken at 7-µ intervals, placed
