Abstract
Over the past 45 years angiocardiography has become established as the most accurate method for clinically defining the size and shape of vascular and cardiac structures. Throughout this period it has received widespread use for the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral vascular disease, congenital and valvular heart disease, and most recently, in dealing with coronary artery lesions. These uses continue despite recent technologic advances in other less invasive diagnostic techniques, such as echocardiography and nuclear medicine. In fact, angio-cardiography will continue to serve, as it has served in the past, as the principal standard of reference in man for calibration and/or comparison of newer methods for determining cardiac volume or dimensional change.
