Abstract: Radiographic evaluation of Cervical Spine alignment parameters assists in the diagnosis of degenerative and traumatic conditions of the cervical spine, for example, cervical spondylosis, stenosis, whyplash injury and neuroplasia. Two prominent parameters used in assessing the Cervical part of the spine is the Lordotic angle and Torg ratio, whose normative values have been established to vary from region to region. The aim of this study was to elucidate the baseline or normative values of Cervical Lordotic angles and Torg ratio in healthy indigenes of Cross River State, Nigeria. Comparison was made between the two parameters to determine if there is any relationship between them. Lateral radiographs for Lordotic angle and Anterior-Posterior (A-P) radiographs for Torg ratio of one hundred images of asymptomatic subjects (100: Male 57 and Female 43) were used to carry out the measurements of these important alignment parameters.
