15 degrees cephalad

what is the proper central ray angle and direction for the AP oblique projections of the cervical spine

45-degree posterior oblique position

what is the proper patient position for an AP oblique projection of the cervical spine

intervertebral foramina closer to the IR

what anatomic structures are best demonstrated by the posteroanterior (PA) oblique projections of the cervical spine

12

how many vertebrae comprise the thoracic spine

thoracic

which vertebrae have special facets for articulation with the ribs

thoracic spine

breathing technique is used to advantage when taking a lateral projection of the

a lateral projection of the cervicothoracic region

the patient is positioned with the coronal plane of the body perpendicular to the IR, the midsagittal plane parallel to the IR, and the arm closest to the IR raised over the head. The central ray is perpendicular and centered to the level of the C7-T1 interspace. What projection and anatomy will be demonstrated in this image

a piece of lead placed behind the shadow of the patient's back

what device may be used to improve visualization of the spinous processes of the thoracic spine on the lateral projection

T3 through T12

which structures should be seen on the lateral projection of the thoracic spine

5

lumbar

which portion of the spine is made up of five vertebrae and has a lordotic curve

at the level of the iliac crest in the midline of the patient

when using a 35 x 43 cm IR, where should the central ray enter the patient for an AP projection of the lumbar spine

at a level 1 1/2 inches superior to the iliac crest in the midline of the patient

when using a 30 x 35 cm IR, where should the central ray enter the patient for an AP projection of the lumbar spine

flexing the knees and using a support under them

what positioning maneuver is used to improve patient comfort and reduce the lordotic curve of the lumbar spine when positioning a recumbent patient for an AP projection of the lumbar spine

lateral

which projection of the lumbar spine demonstrates open intervertebral foramina

45 degrees LPO

right zygapopyseal joints

what specific anatomy is best demonstrated on the AP oblique projection of the lumbar spine if the patient is positioned in a 45-degree RPO position

15 degrees cephalad

what is the central ray angle and direction for the AP axial projection of the sacrum

coccyx

what portion of the spine is commonly called the tailbone

the IR should extend from the top of the patient's ear to the level of the greater trochanter
