Figure 13: Coronal scan of the cervical spine demonstrating the articular pillars of C3, C4, C5, as well as the inferior articular process of C2. In the long axis, the articular pillars appear as a series of peaks (zygapophyseal joints lines) and valleys (convex shapes of the articular pillars). This view is used for level and needle position confirmation. The medial branches (mb) of C3, C4, and C5 can be seen, as well as the third occipital nerve.
