Abstract
This pamphlet provides information on free chest x-rays available to working underground coal miners under the Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969. The Act provided that underground coal miners were eligible to participate in a chest x-ray program for the diagnosis of coal worker's pneumoconiosis. Topics discussed in this pamphlet included coal workers' pneumoconiosis, mine operator payment for x-ray examinations of workers, arrangements for examinations, interpretation of the x-rays by physicians, notification of the results, additional medical information from the x-ray examination, black lung benefits, and general benefits of participation in the examination program.
