Imaging Case of the Week 28

It is 1 am. Your resident has just seen a 22 year old man with wrist injury sustained in a MVA and would like your opinion on the wrist x-ray. His plan is to reduce the fracture under sedation and place a below elbow POP slab. Here are the wrist x-rays; would you agree with his plan?

  1. Thanks Prathibha,

    Also worth noting that the above elbow POP should be placed on the volar surface at the wrist,and the hand should be placed in supination whilst in the POP.
