The authors review the radiographic examination in tumors of the larynx as suggested and studied by Coutard since 1922, adding to this the advantage of the recent study of the larynx by planigraphy or tomography. They arrive at the conclusion that the lateral view is indicated in cancer of the superior portion of the larynx as well as in the anterior subglottic tumors. They advise planigraphy in tumors of the medial portion of the larynx and in lateral subglottic tumors. The paper is illustrated with a large number of roentgenograms and drawings of the clinical conditions.
