Oblique position in which the right or left anterior aspect of the body is closet to the IR RAO right anterior oblique LAO left anterior oblique
Radiographic positioning that is always performed with the central ray horizontal. Decubitus (decub)
Patient lies on the side, and the x-ray beam is directed horizontally form anterior to posterior (AP) or posterior to anterior (PA) Right or left lateral decubitus
patient is lying on the dorsal surface with the x-ray beam directed horizontally, exiting from the side closest to the IR Dorsal decutius position

Support and protect many soft tissues of the body, produces red blood cells, and allows movement through interaction with the muscles to form a system of levers Skeletal system
Prepare food for absorption by the cells through numerous physical & chemical processes, and eliminate solid wastes Digestive system
Distribute oxygen and nutrients to the cells, carry cell waste & CO2 from the cells, protect against disease, and help reg. body temp Circulatory system
Supplies O2 to the blood and eventually the cells, eliminates CO2 from the blood, and assists in reg. the acid-base balance in blood Respiratory system
Regulates the chem. composition of the blood, eliminates many waste products, and reg. fluid & electrolyte balance and volume Urinary system
Regulates body activities with electrical impulses that travel along various nerves Nervous system
Allows movement, maintain posture, produces heat Muscular system
To regulate bodily activities through the various hormones carried by the cardiovascular system Endocrine system

The long axis of a structure or part Axial projection
Why do you take a minimum of two projections (90 degrees from each other) Superimposition of anatomic structures, localization of lesions or foreign bodies, and determination of alignment of fractures
Three projections are required when? When the joint is in the prime interest area
How many projections are required for a postreduction upper and lower limbs Two for checking fracture alignment
How many projections are required for a pelvis study Only one unless a hip injury is suspected
Exams that require two projections Forearm, humerus, femur, hips, Tib-fib, and chest
Accepted way to place a radiographic image for viewing So that the patient is facing the viewer
