There are several wrist injuries which are more unusual but which we shouldn’t miss:
- Always arrange follow up if you (even vaguely) suspect a scaphoid fracture,
- review that radiograph for lunate and perilunate dislocations
- and does that scapho-lunate gap look a little wide to you…?
- If you see an interesting x-ray which would be useful for educating your colleagues then just drag and drop it into the anonymised folder ‘ED Abnormalities’ on our PACs system.
- If you have access to Clinical Key the why not follow this link to Raby’s Accident and Emergency Radiology: A Survival Guide, Third Edition (Institutional access and Athens login required)
