and crossing the descending aorta at mark HD (see figure) , and 2) the distance between the HD mark to the Hyoid Bone (HB). Results: There was a correlation between the AV-HD distance and the HD-HB distance (non parametric r Z 0.66, p <0.0001) and the AV-HD distance were positively correlated to the height of the subjects (r Z 0.60, p < 0.002). Conclusions: 1-The AV-HD distance projects to a constant anatomical landmark (i.e. the hyoid bone) 2-The size of this arterial segment is significantly
