  • Pelvic orientation

    I am a paleoanthropologist and work, among other things, on the pelvis
    in Neandertals and other early humans. For reasons I would be happy to
    explain at greater length if anyone is interested, I need to know something
    about the orietation of the pelvis during stance. Most anatomy books
    state that the anterior superior iliac spine and top of the pubic symphysis
    are on a vertical line during stance, but I am interested in how much variation
    there is between living humans in this. I have looked in the literature quite
    a bit, but by far the majority of pelvic x-rays are taken with the subject
    lying down. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
