Extract

Introduction: Increased neck circumference is a recognized risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea. For men, the cutoff is 43 cm and for women it is 37 cm. We are investigating a novel method in measuring the neck circumference via the chest x-ray. Since a chest-x ray is a 2 dimensional image, measuring the circumference will be an indirect method “π × D”. We wanted to compare this to the clinical method and investigate how reliable would it be to depend on the chest x-ray alone.
