Abstract

• Xeroradiography of the neck was performed on 36 children with suggested or known acquired tracheal abnormalities. The information obtained from the lateral projection xeroradiograph was superior in selected cases to the conventional soft tissue roentgenogram. In these cases, the information obtained justified the increased (12-fold) radiation exposure and obviated the need for positive contrast examination. This procedure should be considered in any case in which a fluoroscopic contrast examination is indicated.
