Extremely well-illustrated, this book attempts to cover completely the subject of pneumoconiosis with special emphasis on clinical findings and roentgenographic interpretations. Four authors have combined to write different sections of five chapters. The basis of the book is the diagnosis of pneumoconiosis in the living.
The authors point out that pneumoconiosis first occurs in adults after definite exposure to dusts followed by a latent period. During this period there is plenty of opportunity for the lungs, as a result of disease and noxious agents, to develop changes that may be mistaken for mask or overshadow changes resulting from dust inhalation.
