Spinal Radiographs:

It is critical to have quality radiographs taken of anaesthetised animal to evaluate spinal problems. It is essential that the spine is aligned straight without any rotation. Rotation of a VD/DV film is evaluated by seeing the sternum superimposed over the spine.

Dens:  Views for the dens include lateral, a DV, or an open mouth radiograph.
