OBJECTIVE To determine the ratio of ventral-to-dorsal transverse diameters between the wings of the sacrum on ventrodorsal radiographic views of the pelvis in large dogs and to validate the reliability of this morphometric analysis for functional interpretation. SAMPLE POPULATION Pelvic specimens from 40 large-breed dogs and radiographs of 113 large-breed dogs. PROCEDURE In an anatomic and radiographic evaluation, the transverse dorsal diameter (TVDS) and transverse ventral diameter (TVV… CONTINUE READING
