8 Artefacts: are there any artefacts on the image? These may be from either the patient or the imaging process. Only repeat if the artefact is interfering with diagnosis. 9 Need for repeat radiographs or further projections: a judgement is made from evaluations 1–8. If one or more factors have reduced the diagnostic quality to a point where a diagnosis cannot be made the image should be repeated. Would any additional projections enhance the diagnostic potential of the examination? For example, radial head projections for an elbow radiograph.
7 Look for the second fracture – There is an old saying ‘if you spot one fracture, look for another’ and a common mistake is to identify a fracture but miss a second by not checking the entire image. g. pelvis), then a further injury should be sought as there are frequently two fractures. 32 Theatre Radiography THEATRE RADIOGRAPHY Introduction Theatre radiography plays a significant role in the delivery of surgical services. The radiographer may be required for emergency procedures or planned surgery in both trauma and non-trauma procedures.
Over-rotation ϭ fibula projected posterior to the tibia. Under-rotation ϭ shaft of the fibula superimposed on the tibia. Ankle – Lateral Positioning for lateral ankle Example of lateral ankle radiograph 51 Radiographic Projections CALCANEUM – AXIAL Position of Patient and Image Receptor ■ ■ ■ ■ The patient sits or lies supine on the X-ray table with both limbs extended. The affected leg is rotated medially until both malleoli are equidistant from the image receptor. The ankle is dorsiflexed. The position is maintained by using a bandage strapped around the forefoot and held in position by the patient.
