Figure 2 (A-C): (A-C) Achondroplasia. (A) Lack of progressive widening of interpedicular distance, with narrowing at L5-S1 level (arrow). Lateral spine radiograph (B) shows posterior scalloping (arrows) of vertebral bodies, narrow pedicles (dotted arrows), and classical “bullet vertebra” appearance at the dorsolumbar junction. D12 has been marked for diagrammatic depiction of morphology (yellow: vertebral body, blue: pedicle). Pelvis radiograph (C) “tombstone pelvis”, trident sign (arrow), and rhizomelic shortening
