The Cervical Gravity Line is created by first locating the center of the tip of the Odontoid Process, then dropping a line downward, perpendicular to the bottom of the film. This line should just touch the anterior body of C7.

If the line falls forward of C7 there is anterior head placement, also known as Forward Head Posture
