Abstract: The conditions of Cervical Spine radiographs can be assessed by mere evaluating the alignment of bones and cartilages that make up the spine. Various radiographic parameters of the cervical spine including the Inter-pedicular Distance (IPD) and Canal Diameter, can be evaluated for diagnostic and treatment of ailments associated with the Cervical region, which, often times, manifest in the form of neck and back pain. The aim of the present study was to elucidate the normative values of IPD and Canal Diameter in adult population of Igbos in South Eastern Nigerian. The Cervical X-ray images of patients whose age ranges were between 18-45years, and a total of 100 images were measured of which males were 57 and females 43. For the IPD, the distance measured was the shortest distance between the medial surfaces of the pedicles of individual Cervical vertebra.
