LAFONT et al. (2) were the first to perform tomography on cerebral vessels. Since that time (1956) cerebral angiotomography (AT) has been used routinely only in a relatively small number of neuroradiologic departments. The reason is mainly to be found in the fact that it was only rarely that suitable tomographic equipment was available in the angio-room. Therefore, other techniques of image enhancement and various methods of obtaining information on complex vascular structures were preferred. AT, however, can be a very effective means of solving certain angiographic problems, particularly in the posterior fossa. It is not a difficult procedure and does not require very sophisticated apparatus, at least in its most simple forms.
