What is X-RAY CERVICAL SPINE AP?
The anteroposterior (AP) cervical spine projection is part of the cervical spine series.
Indications

Patient position

  • patient shoulders should be at equal distances from the image receptor to avoid rotation

  • chin should be raised to align the lower margin of the upper incisors to the mastoid tips/base of the skull (unless trauma when the patient is placed in a cervical collar)
Technical factors
  • Anterior-posterior projection

  • Centering point

    • The central ray is midline centered at the level of C4 to enter immediately below the hyoid bone

    • 15° Cephalad

  • Collimation

    • Laterally to include the entire cervical spine

    • Superiorly to include C2 and inferiorly to include T2
