    Xiphoid tip: ______________
    Lower rib margin: __________
    • Jugular notch: T2- T3 also termed the manubrial notch or suprasternal notch
    • Sternal Angle: T4- T5
    • Xiphoid tip: T9-T10
    • Lower rib margin: L2 - L3
  3. SC joints comprise the _________ __________ of the rib and the __________ __________of the sternum?
    Medial Aspects of the ribs and lateral aspects of the sternum
  4. Ribs ____ thru ____ are considered true because: __________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________
    1 thru 7-- bc they attach to the sternum by costocartalidge
  5. Ribs ____ thru____ are considered false because:
    8 thru 12-- bc they are attached to the 7th costocartilage not their own
  6. Ribs ____ and ____ are classified as both because?
    11 and 12 -- bc they are not connected to any cartilage at all
  7. Joint between rib and cartilage termed:
    costochondral
  8. joint between cartilage termed:
    interchondral
  9. joint between sternum and cartilage:
    sternocostal
  10. Joints between the rib and vertebrae:
    Costotransverse and costovertebral
  11. Sternum:
    Oblique:___________ degree:___________
    Reasoning:_________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________
    Breathing technique:__________________________________________________________
    kVp:________________ SID: minimum___________
    • oblique: RAO or LPO degree: 15 - 20 barrel chested - less rotation skinny chested more rotation
    • reasoning: shift the sternum just to the left of the thoracic vertebrae and into the heart shadow
    • Breathing technique: taking shallow breaths during exposures
    • KVP: low ( 65 give or take 5)
    • SID: minimum 40
  12. Above the diaphragm:
    Breathing:___________
    kVp range:___________
    CR:_________________
    • above diaphragm
    • breathing: inspiration
    • kVp: low ( 65-70)
    • CR: T7
  13. Below the diaphragm:
    Breathing:____________
    kVp range:____________
    CR:__________________
    • Below diaphragm
    • Breathing: Medium (70 - 80) penetrate muscle
    • CR: between xiphoid tip and lower rib ( bottom of cassette at top of iliac crest)
  14. Sternum:
    Routine includes: __________________ and ________________
    Oblique:
    Patient Position:________________________________________
    CR:________________SID:_______________ Cassette size:______________
    • Sternum:
    • Routine: RAO and Lateral
    • Oblique: patient position: 15 - 20 degrees toward the right side
    • CR: Center of sternum
    • SID: 40 in
    • Cassette size: 10 x 12

  15. Lateral Sternum:
    Patient position:__________________________________________
    CR:____________________________________________________
    SID:____________________________________________________
    Cassette Size:_____________________________________________
    • Lateral sternum
    • Patient position: standing arm drawn back
    • CR: center of sternum
    • SID: 72 inches-- reduces magnification of sternum caused by oid
    • Cassette Size: 10 x 12 LW

    • Routines: PA and anterior oblique
    • PA:
    • patient position: prone face down arms either up or down
    • CR: T2 - T3 (3 below C7)
    • SID: 40 In
