The vertebrae from C3 to T1 were observed and measured on 50 sets of adult. The results demonstrated that the angle between cervical transverse process and horizontal plane of ver.tebral column increases gradually from superior to inferior,as C3 is 10. 82±2. 18° and C7 is 14. 12±2. 43°. The angle between vertical axis of intervertebral foramen and sagittal plane of vertebral column is smaller in middle cervical vertebra than in ferior and superior one' s. We discussed the method of X-ray tomography also.
