X-Ray Diagosis of Early Gastric Cancer

  • Heizaburo Ichikawa


It may be said that the recent remarkable progress in the field of gastrofiberscopic examination is apt to lead the medical profession to believe that X-ray examination is no longer necessary in the diagnosis of gastric diseases. In my opinion, however, X-ray examination, particularly with the double contrast method, still plays a major role in diagnosis in this area.
