This is an excellent discussion of angiocardiography written by one of the originators of the technique. The material is clearly presented and the monograph contains a detailed discussion of apparatus, methods, preparation of the patient, and advice regarding precautions. There are many valuable and clear illustrations concerning technique. The roentgenographic equipment is also well discussed. The method is followed by chapters on the normal angiocardiogram and its pattern in abnormal states, including disease of the aorta, various types of heart disease, including congenital defects, disease of the mediastinum, and pulmonary disease. The book will prove of value for reference and is recommended without reservation to all interested in presentday angiocardiography. It should be read by everyone concerned with applications of this method to both clinical and research medicine.
