Table 3 Radiographic positioning

From: Computed tomographic and radiographic examination of dental structures in South American camelid specimen of different ages

Projection Description of the projections Central beam
Dorsoventral Both mandibles positioned on the plate, hard palate parallel to the table, vertical beam Cross point of midline and line between two MOCs*
Laterolateral Sagittal plane of the head parallel to the plate, horizontal beam Half distance between ear base and lateral nostril angle on the facial crest
Left to right lateral30°dorsal-lateroventral oblique Imaging plate parallel to the sagittal plane of the head Half distance between ear base and lateral nostril angle on the line parallel to nasal margin which goes through lateral nostril angle
Left to right lateral30°ventral-laterodorsal oblique Imaging plate parallel to the sagittal plane of the head Half distance between ear base and lateral nostril angle on the rim of the corpus mandibulae
Intraoral VD of lower jaw Intraoral plate, vertical beam In the midline at the caudal aspect of the symphysis mandibulae
