The correct answer is (A). Intervertebral joints are well visualized in the lateral projection of all the vertebral groups. … The cervical intervertebral foramina lie 45° to the midsagittal plane (and 15° to 20° to a transverse plane) and are therefore demonstrated in the oblique position.

Which structures should be seen on the lateral projection of the thoracic spine?
The entire thoracic spine should be visible from T1 to T12: intervertebral joints and neural foramen are open, with the superimposition of the posterior spinous processes and posterior rib articulation indicating a true lateral has been achieved.
What is the central ray angle for an AP thoracic spine?

How much angle would be required on an oblique position of the thoracic spine to demonstrate the Zygapophyseal joints?
The thoracic zygapophyseal joints are 70 degrees to the MSP and are demonstrated in a steep (70-degree) oblique position. The thoracic intervertebral foramina, formed by the vertebral notches of the pedicles, are 90 degrees to the MSP.
What structure is best visualized on a lumbar oblique projection?
The lumbar spine oblique view is used to visualize the articular facets and pars interarticularis of the lumbar spine.
Where should the CR enter the patient for the lateral projection of the cervical thoracic region?
Where should the CR enter the patient for the 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.
What is the C spine?
About the cervical spine
The cervical spine refers to the seven spinal bones (vertebrae) in the neck. It supports the head and connects to the thoracic spine. Most of the ability to turn the head comes from the top two segments of the cervical spine.

What is thoracic view?
A thoracic spine X-ray is an imaging test used to inspect any problems with the bones in the middle of your back. An X-ray uses small amounts of radiation to see the organs, tissues, and bones of your body. When focused at the spine, an X-ray can help spot abnormalities, injuries, or diseases of the bones.
