Abstract: ECG and CXR helped diagnose heart disease in four patients thought to have no heart disease, helped to rule out lesions in seven patients with possible heart disease, helped diagnose heart disease in five patients thought to have possible heart disease, and helped confirm heart disease in nine patients. In these days of cost containment, routine ECG and CXR continue to be valuable tools for the pediatric cardiologist in evaluation of patients with heart murmurs or chest pain.
