The prone cross-table lateral radiograph provides equal or sometimes better information, compared to the invertogram, for demonstration of the level of rectal atresia in neonates. Easy positioning, better cooperation of the patient, elimination of the effect of gravity, and better delineation of the rectal gas shadow are the advantages of the prone lateral view. Perpendicular to the femoral neck and to the grid for the Cross-Table Lateral hip. If a patient presents with a history of falling, an AP of the pelvis and cross-table lateral of the hip are ordered. Cephalic tube tilt (2 additional views). The cross-table lateral view is essential in the initial workup of a trauma patient with a suspected cervical-spine injury. The identification of the radiograph.
Abstract. This is a retrospective study of 128 patients with a discharge diagnosis of cervical spine fracture, dislocation, or subluxation. The study was undertaken to establish the accuracy of the posttraumatic cross table lateral view radiograph of the cervical spine (CTLV). The most common routine cervical projections are the anteroposterior (AP), AP open mouth, and lateral. Oblique projections of the cervical spine are not routinely obtained, although they may be called for to help visualize obscure fractures of the neural arch and abnormalities of the neural foramina and apophyseal joints. The cassette is placed against the right side of the neck, as for the standard cross-table lateral view. This page includes the following topics and synonyms: Cross-Table Lateral C-Spine, Lateral Cervical Spine XRay, Lateral C-Spine XRay.
