Abstract

When the nature of an opacity at the pulmonary periphery is not clear after a standard X-ray examination, bronchography may be utilized to recognize the bronchopulmonary origin of the lesion; a process having a pleural origin, i.e., tumor or effusion (Figs. VI. 1 a-c, VII. 126); or an extrinsic disease (mediastinal or diaphragmatic) (Fig. II. 7 a-d).
