A method allowing the roentgenographic demonstration of the vertebral veins and external vertebral plexi in the cervical region has been presented and documented with representative illustrations. The site of osseous puncture is the spinous process of the atlas. Contrast medium (Hypaque) introduced directly into the medullary cavity of this bony protuberance readily escapes the bone and renders radiopaque above venous pathways, which hitherto remained hidden to conventional roentgenographic methods. The absence of any immediate or late ill effects, the relative simplicity and the potentialities of this method certainly invite further investigative work.
