The initial two sections discuss technical aspects, radiographic views, general approach to congenital heart diseases, assessments of vascularity, cardiomegaly, pericardial and skeletal aspects to be seen in chest X-ray.

This also endeavors to help guide systematic evaluation of a chest radiograph so as to pick up all the relevant information in it. The third section of the textbook details the individual cardiac lesions with respect to X-ray evaluation.
