    • 2)Thoracic(12 bones:lunch at 12)
    • 3)Lumbar(5 bones:dinner at 5)
    • 4)Sacrum(5 fused bones)
    • 5)Coccyx(4 fused bones)

    • To remember the order of the sections of the spine:
    • "The cervent  attacked (with saw and) ax the lumbar. stack and cord"
    • the cervant(servant) is for cervical, the attacked for the atlas, and the ax for the axis

  3. The atlas  is the only cervical vertabrae without   _______ processes  or a ________.
    spinous, body

    *note the odontoid process(dens) is an extemsion of the body of the axis
  4. What is the joint between the ribs and the thoracic vertebrae called?
    costovertebral joint
  5. How large id the body of a lumbar vertebrae?
    2-3cm (usually)
  6. What is the joint between the pelvis and the sacrum called?
    sacroiliac joint (joint between the sacrum and the iliac)
  7. Where does the spinal cord end and what is it called?  Why do we need to know this?
    • after  L1, the cauda equina ( means horse's tail)
    • After L1, where the spinal cord ends, the spine is not as sensitive to radiation from there down.(it can take more dosea)

    spinous process  (sagittal view)
  12. What is this a CT of and what view is it?

    This is a coronal view of the dens or the odontoid process(which is part of the axis which you can see some of it here)  The dens is the oval-like structure(is the whitest in this picture) that fits into the axis.(which makes the atlantooccipital joint)
  13. What view is this? (*scotty dog sign)

    sagittal oblique
  14. What are the arrows pointing to?

    the parotid gland
  16. Find nasopharynx, oropharynx, and laryngopharynx
