Reveal Findings

CR – AP scoliosis radiograph shows apparent “spinal dislocation” in the upper lumbar region.

Reveal Discussion

Image composite artifact occurs when multiple separate radiographic images are sewn together to make a single image. Usually 2 or 3 CR cassettes are arranged into a single holder with a slight overlap. Using fiducial markings in the images, the overlapping exposures are digitally combined. Failure to recognize this artifact can incorrectly attribute pathology.
