CERVICAL VERTEBRAE-TYPICAL

1. The body (kidney shaped) is the same size or smaller than the foramen.
2. On each side it is projected up into a postero-lateral lip, the uncus.
3. The uncovertebral joints are part of the morphological neural arch.
4. The large C6 anterior tubercle is the c arotid tubercle (of Chassaignac) because the CCA can be compressed against it.
5. The spinous process is bifid + excavated inferiorly for the attachment of the semispinalis cervices.
