Cervical alignment plays a critical role in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal pathology. There has been a proliferation of novel radiographic parameters to quantify cranial and cervical alignment. These parameters have been placed in clinical context by their correlation with health-related quality of life (HRQOL) scores. This article reviews these parameters and describes their utility in understanding spinal deformity and other pathologies of the cervical spine.
