Preoperative and postoperative X-ray of a person with thoracic dextroscoliosis and lumbar levoscoliosis: The X-ray is usually projected such that the right side of the subject is on the right side of the image; i.e., the subject is viewed from the rear (see top image; the bottom image is seen from the front).

This is the opposite of conventional chest X-ray, where the image is projected as if looking at the patient from the front. The surgery was a fusion and instrumentation.
