Autotomography permits improved visualization of the atlas-axis and occipito-cervical articulations with virtually any x-ray equipment in less time than is required for anteroposterior and lateral tomograms. This technique is best applied in nontraumatic cases in which the dens is not seen clearly on the "open mouth view".
