OBJECTIVE To evaluate the usefulness of adynamic lateral neck radiographs and dynamic video rhinoscopy in assessing adenoid size and the relationship of these methods to associated symptoms and thus the severity of the disease. METHODS Children with suspected adenoid hypertrophy underwent standard lateral neck soft tissue radiographs: the percentage of airway occlusion, adenoid to nasopharynx (AN) ratio, airway to soft palate ratio, and adenoid thickness were assessed by a radiologist. The… CONTINUE READING
