capture digital X-ray sensor panels: 9 11 in and 14 17 in (Fig. 3). We typically acquire 4–6 im-ages of the thoracolumbar spine using the 9 11-in sensor panel, depending on the size and thickness of the patient. We begin by positioning the sensor panel just above the highest point of the withers and centering the X-ray beam. Next, we position the
