Abstract

One hundred patients with a variety of cardiac abnormalities were examined by digital subtraction angio-cardiography; the quality of the image was almost as good as conventional cinecardiograms. Image frequency of 25 pictures per second provides a reliable analysis of cardiac contraction and, in many situations, makes it unnecessary to perform selective angio-cardiography. Compared with selective catheter techniques, digital subtraction cardiography has various advantages. Because of its low risk and small patient stress, it is particularly suitable for follow-up examination after various therapeutic measures.
