It is difficult: to determine whether the study was tailored properly without knowing exactly what was performed, and what the clinical indications were. However, if you are concerned that they didn’t mention coccyx, that is not an issue because the coccyx is connected to the sacrum, and any study that visualized the sacrum would necessarily include the coccyx. There would be no way not to.
