of stomach roentgenograms (double contrast, horizontal position, anterior projection): the wall of the lesser curvature in the upper third of the stomach body is thickened over a short length (arrow). f, g Series of stomach roentgenograms (double contrast, horizontal position, left half-oblique projection): walls thickened due to intramural infiltration (arrow) are visualized more distinctly; h Stomach roentgenogram (double contrast, horizontal position, left oblique projection): optimal projection in roentgenote-lescopy distinctly visualizes infiltration of the anterior wall in the upper third of the stomach body over a significantly greater length
compared with other projections (arrows). Conclusion: Minor infiltrative cancer of the anterior wall of the upper third of the stomach body. Histological study of tissue specimens taken during endoscopy failed to find tumor cells. The patient was examined using computed tomography. i, jSeries of CT images of the stomach (tight filling with E-Z-CAT DRY, supine patient): insignificant thickening of the stomach wall to 8 mm over a length of 3.2 cm (arrow). k CT image of the stomach (after additional inflation with air; supine patient): after inflation of the stomach, wall thickness does not change (arrows). l CT image of the stomach (after addi-
