This is the first volume of a fourvolume series covering the roentgen diagnosis of the heart and blood vessels.

The first volume is devoted to a discussion of the radiologic anatomy of the heart as well as the correlation of physiologic and pathologic observations with radiologic studies. A detailed description of volume measurements of the heart and aorta is presented with critical appraisal of various conventional radiologic methods presently available. Extensive information is provided correlating a large variety of anatomic and physiologic factors with heart size including values for the pediatric age group. Unfortunately, heart chamber volume determinations based on contrast methods are not sufficiently treated and one would hope that in future editions of an encyclopedic text these radiologic methods would be properly considered.

The pulsatory phenomena of the heart and large vessels are very adequately described in a special chapter devoted to the various types of roentgenokymographic procedures
