In 1938, George Robb and Israel Steinberg of New York overcame some of the difficulties of cardiac catheterization (introduction of a small tube into the heart by way of veins or arteries) and were able to visualize the chambers of the heart on X-ray film. After much research, a further refinement came in 1962, when Frank Sones and Earl K. Shirey of Cleveland showed how to introduce the contrast medium into the coronary arteries. http://www.britannica.com/bcom/eb/article/4/0,5716,119074+4+110313,00.html
