Which of the following features makes the cervical vertebrae unique?
There are seven cervical vertebrae in the human body. They have three main distinguishing features: Bifid spinous process – the spinous process bifurcates at its distal end. Exceptions to this are C1 (no spinous process) and C7 (spinous process is longer than that of C2-C6 and may not bifurcate).

What are the optimal tube angle and direction for AP oblique projections of the cervical spine?
The tube should be angled at 15 degrees.
What is one of the unique anatomical characteristics of the cervical vertebrae?
What is one of the unique anatomical characteristics of the cervical vertebrae? Cervical vertebrae have a transverse foramen on each side of the body. Which veterbra is also known as the axis?
What is an Odontoid view?
Odontoid view shows displacement of the lateral masses of C1, allowing distinction of this fracture from a simple fracture of the posterior neural arch of C1.
Where is Odontoid process?
The odontoid process, or dens, is a superior projecting bony element from the second cervical vertebrae (C2, or the axis). The first cervical vertebrae (atlas) rotates around the odontoid process to provide the largest single component of lateral rotation of the cervical spine.
