That computers could take objective data and arrive at a diagnosis appeared a tenable hypothesis to some in 1958, but it was dismissed as preposterous by many. The story of a systematic research to prove the hypothesis is unfolded in this monograph. The book deals almost exclusively with the significant work of the authors in developing a technique for the automatic analysis and interpretation of the electrocardiogram. There are techniques developed by others (for example, Smith and Pipberger) that accomplish the same objective, although through other methods. Caceres and Rikli do not discuss these other methods in their monograph.
