OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to describe a method for recognizing acute traumatic occipitoatlantal dissociation that uses the basion-axial interval and basion-dental interval and to compare the accuracy of this method with the accuracies of two other methods: the Powers ratio and the x-line method. MATERIALS AND METHODS Lateral radiographs of the cervical spine of 37 patients in whom the diagnosis of occipitoatlantal dissociation had been made on the basis of the relationship of… CONTINUE READING
