The superior pole of Harris's ring corresponds to the base of the odontoid process. Harris's ring is destroyed in C2 fractures extending below the base of the odontoid process. The visualisation of Harris's ring is not at all uniform; it depends on the form of the C2 articular processes and on the orientation of the X-ray beam. 41 21 a b 42 21 Case 21 Posterior interapophyseal degenerative changes, degenerative changes of the uncinate process with narrowing of the left C6-C7 intervertebral foramen, huge anterior osteophytes (a) ...
