On the basis of roentgenograms of 55 cases, the author discusses obstructive emphysema, lobular or segmental atelectasis, round infiltrates, and cavitations that he considers early pulmonary manifestations of bronchogenic carcinoma. Stress is put upon the initial stages of obstructive emphysema and atelectasis that may be easily overlooked during a routine examination of a regular chest film. Nice reproductions of chest roentgenograms, as well as of some body section radiographs, occupy most of the volume with short explanatory legends. Methods to confirm the presence of a bronchogenic carcinoma (bronchography, bronchoscopy, cytology, and thoracotomy) are briefly mentioned in the introduction. Text and
