Details of X-RAY WRIST JOINT AP LAT
What is X-RAY WRIST JOINT AP LAT?
An X-ray of the wrist is a safe and painless test to visualize the eight bones of the wrist joint (known as carpal bones), the lower ends of the forearm bones (radius and ulna), wrist joint, and the soft tissues (skin and muscles) surrounding it using a small amount of radiation. The image is recorded on a special X-ray film. The X-ray image is black and white. Dense structures such as the bones, appear white and softer body tissues, such as the skin and muscles appear darker. The actual exposure time to radiation is usually less than a second, although the overall test may take 15-20 minutes.
Why are X-Ray Wrist AP LAT Views done?
To diagnose any fracture of the bones of the wrist joint and to monitor the healing of the broken bones, after it has been set. To detect any infection, osteoporosis, deformities, or abnormal growth of the bones. To diagnose any suspected arthritis or dislocation of the wrist joint. Also done in children as a part of the bone-age studies, to look for any growth abnormalities.
What are the drawbacks of a bone X-ray?
X-ray images give a very clear view of the bones. However, it does not provide a good visual image of the soft tissues like tendons, muscles, or fat tissue under the skin. Even the bone microfractures or complicated spine injuries are not clearly visible on the X-Ray images. Apart from this, it also exposes the patient to some amount of radiation but the benefit of the information gained from an X-ray image outweighs the risk of radiation.
Who interprets the X-ray results?
The interpretation of an X-Ray image is carried out by a radiologist who analyses or reads the X-ray image and prepares a report of the findings which is shared with the patient.
