Summary

A radiologic examination of the thoracic spine is an X–ray of the twelve chest thoracic vertebrae. An AP and lateral are basic projections. The X–rays are used in a controlled way to minimize the radiation exposure. The X–ray helps evaluate bone injuries and diseases, fractures, dislocations, osteoporosis and deformities in the curvature of the spine.
