Knowledge of normal and abnormal hilar and mediastinal anatomy as depicted by chest radiography is important for the practicing radiologist. This article is an illustrated review of some of the alterations of normal anatomy that can indicate signs of metastatic spread of bronchogenic carcinoma. Thorough analysis of conventional radiographs with recognition of normal variants and detection of abnormal alterations will expedite or obviate certain therapeutic options in patients with bronchogenic carcinoma.
