    Smile Bow sign..

    Also called Napolean Hat sign...
    A radiologic sign seen in Spondylolisthesis wer on an AP radiograph,the anterior border of the body of the lumbar vertebra is continuous with the anterior border of its transverse process forming a bow-like pattern(or a Naplean hat-like one).
    (In the pic below)The superior surface of the body of the 5th lumbar vertebra is facing fwds and the outline of the anterior border of the transverse process and that of the body are both projected against the shadow of the sacrum.

    Code:

    Link to the book Classic Radiologic Signs by Michael Mulligan (on Google books)..It describes 100 radiologic signs with accompanying radiograms and illustrative pics(the above sign has a pic of Napolean's hat so u can compare 4 urself)Really goood book
