In the foreword to their monograph, the authors state their objective to be an outline emphasizing the diagnosis and estimation of severity of cardiac malformations through the use, the synthesis, and the integration of information obtained from the generally available techniques of plain film roentgenography, electrocardiography, and phonocardiography (auscultation).
The X-ray appearance of the normal heart and the hemodynamic basis for roentgenographic deviations from normal, as well as the specific radiologic findings in a wide variety of cardiac defects, are covered in exquisite detail. The treatment of electrocardiography and phonocardiography is much less extensive but adequate for the objectives of
