radiographic projection

radiographic projection

the path taken by an x-ray beam as it passes through the body. For example, an anteroposterior projection refers to a beam that enters the anterior (front) of the body and exits the posterior (back).

The lateral radiographic projection showed a radiopaque marker confirming a retained sponge (Fig.
Although radiographic detection of the sponges on standard antero-posterior projections is difficult because of exposure factors, other confusing linear markers, and metallic densities such as sternal sutures, knowledge of the typical location of a lost sponge and use of lateral radiographic projections may aid in early detection of this rare complication.
In addition, a significant amount of radiographic projection error further limits their accuracy.
Perhaps the most important aspect of integration is the possibility that the receptor system may share information about how the radiographic projection was generated.

We hypothesized 1) that perching-joint angles can be measured from straight lateral and oblique radiographic projections with intra- and interobserver variation of less than 10%, and 2) that perching-joint angles would differ between species.
