The results of examinations of 3,500 cancer patients carried out at the Center since 1979 are discussed. Evidence on the role of computed tomography in the diagnosis of tumors of the head, neck, lung, peritoneal cavity and retroperitoneal space is presented. The specific mode of identification of cancer and benign tumors of different sites by means of computed tomography as well as the resolving power of the method in detecting tumor are described. Particular attention is focused on differential diagnosis between malignant, benign tumors and inflammatory processes.
