By H.A. Snellen, H.C. Hemker, P.G. Hugenholtz, J.H. van Bemmel

This booklet contains the basic files from a Boerhaave direction given in June 1971 for experts in cardiology and different fields of inner drugs drawn to the topic of quantitation in cardiology. it truly is obtrusive that during the large box of drugs, and especially in cardiology, there's a starting to be want for designated and unique details along with current diag­ nostic tools. this is often obvious within the higher precision in anatomical and haemodynamic info required through the thoracic health care professional because the variety of to be had center operations steadily raises. looking back it's rarely striking that the excessive preliminary mortality after the creation of every operation depended to a wide volume upon the measure of accuracy with which the prognosis used to be made. one other pressing want for certain and quantitative details grew to become obvious whilst tracking of high-risk sufferers, which will prevent compli­ cations and/or loss of life, turned regimen. an identical applies for the diagnostic systems used to estimate the patient's probabilities of surviving an operation and/or rehabilitation after a major incident, equivalent to myocardial infarction. In those fields there's a mammoth quantity of knowledge to be dealt with and - in sleek diagnostic systems - it has to be processed so speedily that the human brain can't suffice and computing device apparatus has becomeindispensable.

This concavity shows well in both sagittal and horizontal projections. If it is smooth overall, containing no increase in high frequency notches or irregularities, and is associated with a normal T vector, then it must be considered as a normal variant. Except for this special case, VCG changes defined as 1 34 R. H. SELVESTER, J. O. WAGNER AND H. B. RUBIN cm scars or larger in this paper occur in less than 2% of our 138 normals. For the type of analysis being presented in this paper, the left ventricle is divided into its four major surfaces: I.
