      PULMONARY ADENOCARCINOMA – IMAGISTIC FEATURES (Abstract): Pulmonary adenocarcinoma in Romania is the second frequency after squamous cell carcinoma (42%). The aim of the study was to identify the main imaging features of this type of neoplasia. Material and methods: In the period 2014-2016, were evaluated using thoracic radiograph and thoracic computer tomography 62 patients with pulmonary neoplasm, histopathological type - adenocarcinoma. Results: Adenocarcinoma was most commonly diagnosed in males (67.74%), aged less than 60 years (59.67%). Both lungs were affected in approximately equal proportions, and the upper lobe segments were most often interested. Peripheral development was the major one (80.64%); tumor structure and pleural invasion were better assessed by the CT exam compared to the radiographic exam. Secondary lesions were localized to the pulmonary, hepatic, adrenal and cerebral levels. Conclusions: Adenocarcinoma is often radiologically diagnosed as the solitary peripheral node. Pleural invasion is a frequent radiographic sign. The structure and the invasive characters of the tumor are best evaluated by the CT exam.
