CT: Cervical spine sagittal and coronal views  
 

These images were reformatted from a helical CT scan of the cervical spine. They are supplementary to axial images and are useful for evaluating alignment and joint spaces. Some fractures, such as compression fractures, are easier to identify on these images, as the loss of height is easier to appreciate.

 
 

Identify the following:

1. anterior arch of C1

2. posterior arch of C1

3. lateral mass of C1

4. dens

5. body of C2

6. spinous process C4

7. uncinate process C3

8. intervertebral disc

9. occipital bone
