Abstract

Roentgenologic examination of the neck has been found to be of considerable practical value in the diagnosis, understanding and treatment of diseases of the nose and throat. Although many reports on this type of examination are to be found in the literature, it is only in recent years that the aid which it offers has been appreciated. It is only since 1929, when the present study was begun at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston (direction of Dr. George W. Holmes), that several articles on the subject have appeared. Most of the clinical material for the present study has been obtained through the close cooperation of Dr. Mervin C. Myerson from the laryngologic service of Dr. Sidney Yankauer at Mount Sinai Hospital.
