Abstract

Nine patients out of a series of 20 are presented illustrating some of the conditions which may affect the sterno-clavicular region (SCR). The value of tomography as a routine procedure in the study of the SCR is stressed, as in many cases the plain film studies fail to reveal clear-cut evidence of pathological changes. Establishing the exact aetiological nature of the lesion is not always possible by means of radiology alone. However, the radiological demonstration of disease in the SCR is invaluable as a guide to the further management of the patient.
