The radiographic anatomy of the occipito-atlantal area has received considerable attention in the radiologic literature [14,15]. The normal relationships of this area were often difficult to assess on radiographs until recently. Occipito-atlantal dislocations and subluxations were once considered uniformly fatal injuries. Major trauma centers, however, are seeing more patients who survive this severe injury, often with little or no neurologic deficits. Several methods have been proposed to describe the normal relationships of the occiput to the atlas [14–17].
38 Lumbarization of S1. When such an anomaly is encountered, three methods can be used to determine the correct lumbar levels. The first method requires the availability of a chest radiograph, a thoracic vertebral radiograph, or a full thoracic and lumbar CT. If such a study is available, it is a simple task to count the thoracic vertebrae. If no other studies are available, the second method should be used. This method is based on the fact that a line drawn across the iliac crests passes through or near the L4 intervertebral disc space.
B) Sagittal CT reconstructed image shows the os (O) to advantage. Thoracic vertebrae The 12 thoracic vertebrae are recognized by the presence of costal facets superiorly and inferiorly on either side of the body and along the transverse processes. These facets articulate with the heads and articular tubercles of the ribs. The last two thoracic vertebrae lack facets on their transverse processes. As in the cervical region, there are typical and atypical vertebrae. The T2 to T8 vertebrae are considered typical; T1 and T9 through T12 are atypical [1–3].
