    • name/patient number
  16. VD Hip Extended view of the pelvis
    Central ray:
    • thickest part of the pelvis
    • midline at the caudal portion of the ischium
    • wings of the ilium - distal patella
  17. Lateral view of the pelvis
    Central ray:
    • at the trochanter or thicket part
    • greater trochanter of the femur
    • slightly cranial to the wing of the ilium- one third of the femur
  18. What are the age requirements for OFA as opposed to PennHIP?
    • OFA: 24 months

  19. What are the three views required in a PennHIP rad?
    • Standard VD hip extended view
    • Distraction view
    • Compression view
  20. Describe positioning for the lateral view of the femur.
    affected leg down, abduct and pull unaffected limb laterally.
  21. Describe hindeg positioning for the CrCd view of the femur
    rotate both femurs inward so that the patellae lie over the patellar grooves.
  22. Where do you measure for a CrCd view of the femur?
    Midshaft of the femur
  23. What are the routine views of the stifle?
    • Lateral
    • CdCr

    • Lateral
    • PlD
  27. How should the hindlimbs be positioned in CdCr views of the stifle or tibia/fibula or PlD view of the foot?
    Unaffected limb can be flexed next to the body. The affected limb or foot is extended out and supported.
  28. What are the routine views for the vertebral column radiographs?
    • Lateral
    • VD
  29. When taking lateral radiographs of the vertebral column, how is the animal positioned?
    Superimpose and pull the limbs caudally, elevate the nose, keep the head in lateral position, place the sternum in alignment with the vertebrae
  30. When taking VD views of the vertebral column, how is the animal positioned?
    hindlimbs in a neutral position, forelimbs evenly positioned and secured. Keep vertebrae parallel to the table.
