[Efficacy of x-ray computed tomography in the diagnosis of tumors of the mediastinum. 103 cases].

Abstract

A prospective study was carried out in 103 patients with mediastinal tumors to determine diagnostic value of CT imaging. A precise diagnosis was obtained in 80% of cases, the detection sensitivity being 100%, 98% and 71% respectively for fatty tumors (20 cases), solid tumors (59 cases) and cystic tumors (24 cases).
