Static and dynamic lateral radiographs have been accepted as first-line imaging for abnormalities in the area of the sacrococcygeal joint, while MRI has been recently proposed as a second-line method.
The primary sinus may have one or many openings, all of which are strictly in the midline between the level of the sacrococcygeal joint and the tip of the coccyx.

Impar ganglion is a solitary ganglion located retroperitoneally at the end of paravertebral sympathetic chain and usually in front of sacrococcygeal joint. Solitary or metastatic tumour in the surrounding tissues causes poorly localized pain.
Impar ganglion is a solitary ganglion located retroperitoneally at the end of paravertebral sympathetic chain, usually in front of sacrococcygeal joint. Afferent sensory fibers of perineal, distal rectum, anus, distal urethra, vulva, distal 1/3 of vagina end here.
Radiologic evaluation showed that the ganglion was located on the direction of sacrococcygeal joint and sacrococcygeal interface was located on the mid-line by the guidance of fluoroscopy.
However, variations have been shown in anatomical studies in the localization of this ganglion between the sacrococcygeal joint and coccyx end.7,8 It is mostly located in front of the sacrococcygeal joint and coccygeal vertebra.
To minimize falsification of measurements the distance between the sacrococcygeal joint and the symphysis had to be less than 32 mm in men and 47 mm in women [12].
The sacrococcygeal joint unites the sacrum and the coccyx.
For the study of pelvic prolapses, the anatomic landmark was considered the pubococcygeal line that extends from the inferior margin of the pubis bone to the sacrococcygeal joint. Sagittal acquisitions during urination with the evaluation of the pubococcygeal line allowed a definitive study of anterior prolapses, he said.
