28

The direction or path of the central ray of the x-ray beam defines the positioning term:

projection

29

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?

LAO

Left Anterior Oblique

30

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?

Ventral decubitus

31

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?

Anterioposterior

32

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?

RPO

Right Posterior Oblique

33

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

34

A specific projection of the foot in which a central ray enters the anterior surface and exits the posterior surface is termed:

Dorsoplantar

35

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?

Fowler's

36

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
