Abstract

Two groups of patients were studied with serial correlated radiological functional analysis. Each group had a previous history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; however, on admission, only one group exhibited the clinical signs of this superimposed disease. The results of this research showed that chronic pulmonary disease is better defined by functional studies while cardiac failure (even in early stages) is always revealed by radiological examination.
