Three radiologists have written a book designed to aid in the differential diagnosis of cardiovascular disorders by assessing significant clinical and laboratory findings in combination with roentgenographic features.

The first half of this book consists of discussions of the roentgenographic and clinical details of cardiovascular disorders. The second half is an atlas of 98 x-ray plates illustrating specific radiologic features. The physiology of alterations of heart configuration, pulmonary blood flow, and positions of the great vessels is presented briefly and correlated with radiologic observations as seen on the plain
