Lateral skull l.jpg

Lateral Skull

  • This dog presented very distressed, pawing at his nose and panting heavily. It turns out a kid in the family had shoved a bobby pin up the dogs nose!

  • Positioning

    • Good

  • Collimation

    • Good

  • Centering

    • OK – it could be a little more caudal

  • Label

    • OK – I finally remembered my right marker and forgot the patient label

  • Technique

    • OK – it is a little blurry

      * This radiograph was taken at the emergency clinic where I work*


Vd skull l.jpg

VD Skull

  • This dog presented very distressed, pawing at his nose and panting heavily. It turns out a kid in the family had shoved a bobby pin up the dogs nose!

  • Positioning

    • Good

  • Collimation

    • OK – the collimation could have been tighter both ventrally and dorsally

  • Centering

    • Good – centered over the caudal border of the scapula

  • Label

    • Good – The patient label is present and the left and right views are labeled accordingly

  • Technique

    • Good – the bones and organs are defined nicely

      * This radiograph was taken at the emergency clinic where I work*


Open mouth nasal l.jpg

Open Mouth Nasal

  • Positioning

    • Good – I am not very familiar with this view so it took me awhile to understand the anatomy

  • Collimation

    • Good

  • Centering

    • OK

  • Label

    • Bad – there is no patient label and no left or right marker

  • Technique

    • OK – the contrast could have been increased

      * I was not able to take this view myself during the semester, but a coworker dug up an old radiograph for me to critique*


Lateral lumbar spine l.jpg

Lateral Lumbar Spine

  • Positioning

    • Good

  • Collimation

    • OK – I’m not sure why the shadow showed up ventrally and the collimation could have been tighter dorsally

  • Centering

    • Good –

  • Label

    • OK – the patient label is visible but there is no left or right marker

  • Technique

    • Good – the spine is well defined


Vd lumbar spine l.jpg

VD Lumbar Spine

  • Positioning

    • Good

  • Collimation

    • OK – Could have been tighter on both the left and right side

  • Centering

    • Good

  • Label

    • OK – the patient label is visible but there is no left or right marker

  • Technique

    • Good – the spine is well defined


Lateral cervical spine l.jpg

Lateral Cervical Spine

  • Positioning

    • OK – it would be nice to not have the sandbag in the radiograph

  • Collimation

    • OK – Could have been tighter on both the left and right side, dorsally and ventrally

  • Centering

    • Good

  • Label

    • OK – the patient label is visible but there is no left or right marker

  • Technique

    • Good – the cervical spine is well defined


Lateral tl junction l.jpg

Lateral TL Junction

  • Positioning

    • Good

  • Collimation

    • OK – the collimation could have been tighter both ventrally and dorsally

  • Centering

    • Good

  • Label

    • OK – the patient label is present but there is no left or right marker

  • Technique

    • Good – the radiograph was not as blurry as it appears in the picture


Ofa hips l.jpg

OFA Hips

  • Positioning

    • Good

  • Collimation

    • OK – the collimation could have been tighter both on the left and right

  • Centering

    • Good

  • Label

    • Good – The patient label and left marker are both present

  • Technique

    • Good – it is easy to tell the hips are not dysplastic


Lateral thorax l.jpg

Lateral Thorax

  • This is a radiograph taken of a 6 year old, FS Lab Mix. She tested positive for heartworm the previous day.

  • Positioning

    • Good

  • Collimation

    • OK – the collimation could have been tighter both ventrally and dorsally

  • Centering

    • Good – centered over the caudal border of the scapula

  • Label

    • Good – The patient label is present and the left and right views are labeled accordingly

  • Technique

    • Good – the bones and organs are defined nicely


Vd thorax l.jpg

VD Thorax

  • Positioning

    • Good – the patient was straight, my picture was not!

  • Collimation

    • OK – the collimation could have been tighter on both the left and right side

  • Centering

    • Good

  • Label

    • OK – the patient label is visible, but the right side was marked manually after the radiograph was taken

  • Technique

    • OK – it could have been a little lighter


Lateral abdomen l.jpg

Lateral Abdomen

  • This is a radiograph taken of a 6 year old, FS Lab Mix. She tested positive for heartworm the previous day.

  • Positioning

    • Good – the whole abdomen is included

  • Collimation

    • Good – the collimation was tight to the dogs body

  • Centering

    • Good – it was centered over the last rib of the patient

  • Label

    • Good – the patient label and left marker are both visible

  • Technique

    • Good – the bones and organs are defined nicely; gas is easily seen in the intestines

  • Positioning

    • Good – the whole abdomen is included

  • Collimation

    • Good – the collimation was tight to the dogs body

  • Centering

    • Good – it was centered over the last rib of the patient
