Untersuchungen von Skelettabschnitten
Rib images (thoracic cage, hemithorax)
The images are prepared in two planes. Recent or older fractures can be assessed (displacement of fragments in relative to each other, serial rib fractures).
Pathological processes of the ribs, such as tumours or metastases will also be visible (pathological fracture).
Entire spine (cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine)
The images are done in two planes. They are used primarily to assess intervertebral disc generation, bone spur formation, and slipped vertebrae, as well as transitional vertebrae formations.
Functional images are taken during strong forward bending (anteflexion) and bending backward (retroflexion). These special images can be made of the cervical and lumbar spine.
Pelvis overview image
Used for assessment of potential pelvis asymmetry, and to examine the hip joints, symphysis, and sacroiliac joints.
Prepared in two planes and used primarily to diagnose injuries to the bone. However, pathological calcification and bone changes (plasmacytoma) can also be detected.
Haemorrhage without bone injury cannot be identified.
Three images are made of the paranasal sinuses. Infections and air-fluid levels can be recognized, as well as mucous membrane polyps.
Check-up images following therapy and for possible puncture for air-fluid level.

Hand and foot x-ray
Assessment of malposition, arthrosis, fractures, and bone changes.
