Two radiologists have contributed a superb and timely volume to roentgenologic literature. The material embraces the mass of knowledge that has accumulated over the last 15 years. It is presented with the day-to-day practice of this specialty in mind. Procedures are outlined and discussed. The normal appearance of the heart and great vessels is subjected to close scrutiny. Mensuration is critically reviewed. Pathological conditions, both usual and unusual, are considered. Congenital malformations are classified and correlated with disturbed function. The role of the radiologist in diagnosis, although admittedly subject to flux, is delineated. Particular attention is given to those conditions that are amenable to correction. The printing is excellent. Numerous illustrations are ably done and well grouped. A well-chosen up-to-date bibliography is included. This volume is highly recommended to the radiologist as well as to those who are engaged in roentgenology of the heart and great vessels.
