Scoliosis
Wiki pre-op.jpg
A coronal X-ray of a person with thoracic dextroscoliosis and lumbar levoscoliosis. The X-ray is projected such that the right side of the subject is on the right side of the image, i.e. the subject is viewed from the rear. This projection is typically used by surgeons as it is how orthopedic surgeons see their patients when they are on the operating table.
