Abstract

Since the introduction of coronary angiography in 1959 and 1960 by Sones and Gen-sini continuous efforts have been made to improve the diagnostic accuracy of this technique. Advances were mostly accomplished in the technical field, especially regarding image quality, but also in the versatility of the systems, e.g., by establishing new angulated views. According to Judkins [1] “the issue in coronary angiography is information versus risk”. Today, with interventional coronary therapy this issue regains special importance. In our experience biplane coronary angiography is one way to improve the relationship “information versus risk”.
