  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 So far as the author has knowledge of, no one has yet reported on the method, by means of the clouble-contrast method, of drawing up the face-on view of the folds of the gastric corpus on the side of the greater curvature.

 And so this is an attempt to make public, for the first time, the details of the method as the author has carried it out.

 The region along the greater curvature is generally believed to be far less vulnerable, pathologically, in comparison with other areas of the stomach. But when you are in doubt as to the condition there, this method should prove invaluable for diagnosis.

 For, even with the use of endoscopes the diagnosis of lesions in this area is far from easy, the reason being the limited and partial scope of the pictures. With the use of X-ray pictures, however, there is a strong possibility that uneven irregular patterns of much wider area can be readily obtained.

 Now that the author has taken the first steps in dealing with lesions in the area along the greater curvature, my desire is to proceed in the direction of diagnosing even minute changes in this region.

 For the method, readers are referred to Table 1 in the original article(p. 116).
