Abstract

It has been demonstrated previously that roentgenographic evidence of the relative volumes of the lateral sinuses corresponds to comparative anatomic evidence of the bony markings on the occipital bone.1 The value of a clinical method for the demonstration of comparative volumes of the lateral sinuses has been briefly discussed in the presentation of that evidence. In order to elucidate further the relation between the actual volume of a sinus and a roentgenographic presentation of that volume, it appeared desirable to compare the responses of the internal jugular veins obtained during the performance of the Tobey-Ayer test with the roentgenographic picture of the markings of the lateral sinuses on the occipital bone of the same person. Since the result of the Tobey-Ayer application of the Queckenstedt test is directly influenced by the caliber of the major efferent cranial vessels, the presence of a favorable correlation should further indicate the clinical
