Which plane divides the body into equal anterior and posterior parts?
True or False:
The terms radiograph and image receptor refer to the same thing.
A longitudinal plane that divides the body into right and left parts is the:
Near the source or beginning
Away from the head end of the body
Inside of something
Increasing the angle of a joint
Outward stress of the foot
Movement of an extremity away from the midline
Turning palm downward
A backward movement
To move around in the form of a circle
toward the center
Away from the source or beginning
On the opposite side of the body
Laying down in any position
Head lower than the feet position
Upright position, palms forward
Top of the foot
Frankfort horizontal plane
Base plane of skull
A plane at right angle to the longitudinal plane
Head higher than feet position
Palm of hand
Sole of foot
Front half of body
A plane that divides the body into anterior and posterior halves
A recumbent position with knees and hips flexed with support for legs
Lithotomy position (uncomfortable AF)
The direction or path of the central ray of the x-ray beam defines the positioning term:
A patient is placed in a recumbent position facing downward. The left side of the body is turned 30 degrees toward the image receptor. Which specific position has been performed?
Left Anterior Oblique
A patient is placed into a recumbent position facing downward. The x-ray tube is directed horizontally and enters the left side and exits the right side of the body. An image receptor is placed against the right side of the patient. Which position has been performed?
A patient is erect with her back to the image receptor. The central ray enters the anterior aspect and exits the posterior aspect of the body. What projection has been performed?
A patient is lying down facing upward with the posterior surface of the body against the image receptor. The right side of the body is turned 45 degrees toward the image receptor. The x-ray tube is directed vertically and enters the anterior surface of the body. Which position has been performed?
Right Posterior Oblique
An elbow projection is taken with the posterior surface placed against the image receptor. The elbow is rotated 20 degrees outwardly. Which specific projection has been performed?
AP oblique with lateral rotation
A specific projection of the foot in which a central ray enters the anterior surface and exits the posterior surface is termed:
A patient is placed in a recumbent position with the body tilted so that the head is higher than the feet. The image receptor is under the patient and the x-ray tube is above the patient. What is the general position of the patient?
The anterior surface of the right knee of the patient is facing the image receptor. The anterior aspect of the knee and lower leg is rotated 15 degrees toward the midline. Which specific projection has been performed?
PA oblique with medial rotation
What is the name of the projection in which the central ray merely skims a body part?
What is the name of the specific projection in which the central ray enters the left side of the chest and exits the opposite side?
What is the specific projection that enters the posterior aspect of the skull and exits at the acanthion?
AP chest with 20 degree cephalic angle is an example of what type of projection?
