Your MRI and CT angiogram show a head tilt to the right. Specific upper cervical x-rays would be helpful.
X-rays from the same point of view i suppose....
uprightdoc wrote:Upper cervical x-rays are much more specific. They focus the beam on the upper cervical spine from three different perspectives. One is from the side and is called a lateral. One is through the nose. It's called a nasium. The third view is from the bottom of the skull looking up to the top. It's called a base posterior. Some upper cervical doctors prefer to take the view from the top of the skull down, which is called a vertex view. Old schoold chiropractors like me used open mouth odontoid views instead of the nasium. Specific upper cervical doctors also use head clamps in ensure proper alignment for the views.
You look large. How much do you weigh and how tall are you?

Also, DrF, some questions about Rob's case:
1. What number of degrees off the horizontal plane do you estimate is Rob's C1?
2. Can you estimate how much in length in inches one leg of Rob's is longer than the other when a leg-length check is done?
3. Can you tell which of his legs will be the shorter leg?
4. Although not shown on the images provided, his C1 could also be rotated, yes?
5. Is there a third axis/plane of measurement in which the C1 can roll forward or backward?

I may need your husband to make a house call but that's a different story.
