Abstract
Silicosis has been added to the List of Notifiable Conditions, the official regulations for reportable conditions in New Mexico. The Workers Health Surveillance Project will actively encourage physicians, including radiologists and pathologists, as well as other health-care professionals, to report all diagnosed or suspect cases of silicosis. These reports should include persons with: A. A physician's provisional or working diagnosis of silicosis, Or B. A chest radiograph interpreted as consistent with silicosis, or C. Pathological findings consistent with silicosis.
