Radiograph of the dorsal spine in the lateral projection showed the presence of mild concavity in the anterior aspect of vertebral bodies ("fish mouth" vertebra) and kyphotic curvature [5].
In the distal end of the trochlear notch is a prominent medial coronoid process (Processus coronoideus medialis), and lateral to it, is the radial notch and a noticeable lateral projection corresponding to the lateral coronoid process (Processus coronoideus lateralis) (Fig.

On a CXR, retrosternal air is best seen in the lateral projection. Small amounts of air can appear as linear lucencies outlining mediastinal contours.
Having contacted the skin lateral to the projection of the C1 TVP, the palpator placed the radiopaque marker directly overlying the most lateral projection of the C1 TVP, avoiding as much as possible soft tissue slippage during the process.
