X-Ray 1 Case Study
X-ray 1 is a left lateral view of the lumbosacral spine taken with the patient in weight bearing or standing. This lateral view is produced with a round cone to better visualize the lumbosacral junction.
X-ray 1b is the left lateral view of the lumbosacral spine with the patient positioned in sidelying.
Bony Pathology: The bone density appears uniform within the vertebrae and surrounding bone. Osteophyte formation and lipping are noted at the margins of the vertebrae, most significant in L3, L4, and L5. The height of the L4 vertebral body appears decreased anteriorly. In X-ray 1, the standing view, the sacrum seems to be tilted anteriorly. This bony pathology may be indicative of degenerative changes associated with degenerative disc disease and/or osteoarthritis.

Additionally, osteophyte formation is impinging on the intervertebral foramen, with facet joint space narrowing, most notable at L4-L5 and L5-S1. In comparing the two radiographs, the vertebral spacing increases in X-ray 1b, the sidelying non-weight bearing position contrasted to X-ray 1, the weight bearing position. This is further indication of the degenerative disc and joint changes occurring in the lumbosacral spine with possible

    As stated before the Scottie dogs helps determine accurate lumbar obliquity. If the superior and inferior articular process (ears and legs) are in profile which together make up the zygapophyseal joint spaces which that too will be demonstrated, and the pedicles (eyes) are seen halfway between the midpoint of the vertebral bodies and the lateral border of the vertebral bodies, you would have a properly positioned oblique lumbar (McQuillen Martensen, 2015, p. 428). When trying to determine if the patient is over or under rotated, the pedicle (eye)…

    There was a disc desiccation C2-C3 through C6-C7 with disc height loss at C6-C7. There was Modic type II endplate degenerative changes at C4 and C6. At C3-C4, there was a disc bulge of 1.7 mm with narrowing of the right neural foramen and deformity or the right C4 exiting nerve root. At C4-5, there was grade 1 anterior spondylolisthesis with superimposed broad-based disc protrusion abutting the thecal sac but without spinal canal stenosis. There were disc material and degenerative joint change which caused narrowing of the right greater than left neural foramen with deviation of the C5 exiting nerve root with disc measurement of 2.1 mm. At C5-C6, there was a broad-based disc protrusion abutting the thecal sac but without significant spinal canal stenosis. There were disc material and degenerative joint uncovertebral change that has caused narrowing of the right greater than left neural foramen with deviation of the right C6 exiting nerve root and the disc measurement of 2.1 mm. At C6-C7, there was a broad-based disc protrusion abutting the thecal sac but without a significant spinal canal stenosis. There was concurrent bilateral uncovertebral joint degenerative change. The disc material and degenerative joint change have caused narrowing of the right greater than left neural foramen. The disc protrusion measured 3 mm. There was a reversal of the normal cervical lordosis. An MRI of the thoracic spine reviewed on 07/19/17 documented a degenerative loss of disc height at T6-T7 and T10-T11.
