5 mm in adults on CT. Black lines define basion axial interval (BAI) ſt extending from basion to line extended along posterior margin of C2, which should be < 12 mm on plain films. C1-C2 spinolaminar line is shown in purple (< 8 mm in adults). (Right) Sagittal graphic shows atlantodental interval (green) and spinal canal diameter (red). 5 mm in this adult. Note the normal Wackenheim line relationship. (Right) Sagittal CT reconstruction in AOD shows widening of the C0-C1 junction ſt with anterior subluxation of the condyle.

Right) Anteroposterior cervical radiograph shows unusual elongation of the C7 transverse processes ſt. In some patients, draping of the lower brachial plexus trunk over the C7 transverse process may produce a clinical brachial plexopathy.

(Right) Sagittal T1WI MR along the plane of the medial aspect of the L5 pedicle shows a vertically oriented root ſt spanning the L5 disc level due to a conjoined nerve root.

Left) Graphic shows the 3 Clarke stations for measuring basilar impression in RA. If anterior ring of C1 is level with the 2nd or 3rd station, then basilar impression is present. (Right) Sagittal graphic shows 2 different measurements: McRae line (yellow) is defined from basion to opisthion, and the dens should be below this line. Length of McRae should be > 19 mm. Lower measurement shows measurements of Torg-Pavlov ratio, which is the diameter of canal (red) to width of vertebral body (black).
