We believe that the method reveals information of great value, and that as a result treatment can be carried out more promptly and more adequately in many cases.

It is unnecessary to discuss the literature in any detail, since Pancoast and Fay summarized it in a recent article.1 The daring and effective investigations of Dandy are of course fundamental.
