One of the burgeoning costs of medical treatment is that of radiography. Yet through recent advances in the field (p 1283), it is now possible radiologically to visualize minute ramifications of branches of the arterial tree. To attain this achievement has required costly research and apparatus, and to apply the new techniques to diagnosis and treatment is unquestionably expensive. But see what it gives in return!

Patients, otherwise normal, who have disfiguring congenital malformations of the face and head now can be examined and treated. Radiological techniques permit us not only to look at the blood supply to these lesions but also to occlude or embolize these vessels of supply with the use of pledgets of gelatin foam or plastic globules. Such treatment can, by itself, produce a shrinkage in size and color of angiomas of the face and tongue, an alteration that can bring peace of mind and improvement
