Abstract

We investigated a clinical record and images for 212 examples in 878 examples diagnosed as mesothelioma in the death votes of 2003. CT images demonstrated pleural plaque to be obtained 42.0%, but in chest X-ray films only 9.8% demonstrated pleural plaque. For examination of CT findings of 117 examples, cases to present extensive irregular findings of pleura were 81.2%. Cases we made the "no irregularity" and "slightness irregularity" were 18.8%.
