ADDITIONAL EXAMINATIONS IN LYMPHOGRAPHY: A RADIOLOGICAL-SURGICAL-PATHOLOGICAL CORRELATION

Abstract

190 patients with metastatic disease were examined lymphographically.  After subsequent surgery, a correlation could be made between the histological and roentgenological findings on the lympho­adenogram, tomogram and angiogram. Only considerable experience in the evaluation of tomograms can lead to optimum results. Supplementary angiography, although a very coarse diagnostic method, also gave more favorable results. For this group of patients, the number of faulty diagnoses on the basis of lympho-adenography (29%) was reduced considerably after selective supplementary tomography and angiography (14%).
