William Heberden
Despite continuing advances in cardiovascular imaging technology, the chest radiograph rightly retains its place as a key cardiac diagnostic tool and as a simple means of following disease progression and treatment effect. Over the 2 decades since writing the original handbook version of this text, it has been my impression that proficiency with the chest radiograph has not withstood the test of time well and has suffered under the distraction of other newer forms of imaging.
The chest radiograph yields clinically useful information in the management of many patients and may often yield clinically unsuspected information. The incremental information provided by the radiographic depiction of the pulmonary parenchyma and pleura to that of clinical assessment is highly relevant and contributory toward the optimal assessment and management of the cardiology patient population.
In writing this book to encourage development during cardiology fellow training, my goal was threefold:
1. To provide a systematic approach to the review of frontal and lateral chest radiographs
2. To foster an appreciation of radiographic signs of disease
3. To impart an awareness of the typical radiographic findings of common and interesting acquired and congenital cardiovascular diseases
As well, I wanted to maintain the practical nature of the handbook on which this book is based while integrating some intriguing and unusual topics for the sake of interest. The origin of the handbook was my set of study notes from when I was a resident in training, a short 2 decades ago. I initially wrote a set of notes so as to not lose track of the many “pearls” that I had been taught while in training, and therein is the intended spirit of the book—the development, especially of cardiology trainees, and, I hope as well, of other trainees and of those in established practice in the care of patients with cardiovascular disease.

To my former mentors and colleagues at McGill University, especially Jim Stewart, MD, whose disciplined clinical excellence and proficiency with the chest radiograph were inspiring examples of insight into disease, clinical reasoning, and the utility of diagnostic imaging in clinical medicine, and John H. Burgess, MD, whose superb clinical acumen, alacrity, and analytical approach were as inspiring. I am indebted to both of them for their openness and generosity in communicating their knowledge, their encouragement, and as well for their wonderful example as physicians that set the standard that I sought to live up to.
