Laennec used his new tool to study the sounds made by the movements of the heart and lungs, for which he invented a terminology. He described pneumothorax, established the fact that all phthisis is tuberculous, distinguished pneumonia from bronchitis and from pleuritis, and gave descriptions of bronchitis, edema of the lungs, emphysema, tuberculosis and lung cancer that have in many respects remained unsurpassed until today. He also provided the first description of chronic interstitial hepatitis, for which he coined the term "cirrhosis"; the disease is often called "Laennec's cirrhosis." The four folding plates illustrate Laennec's stethoscope (a short wooden tube), pathologic conditions of the lung, and deformity of the chest from chronic latent pleurisy.--J. Norman, 2006
