This is Dr. David
I can give you some information to include in your report,
but I can not write the report for you
are you in a radiology technologist school?
when is the assignment due by?
is the fracture to be a simple fracture or compound fracture?
is there suppose to be orthopedic surgery intervention?
no orthopedic surgeon required. the assignment is due tmrw. and yes radiology school. it is to be a closed fracture that wont require surgery
what parts of the assignment do you have questions on.
again, we can help answer questions about your assignment, but we can't write the whole report for you.
how you would word it on a report. and the type of xray
you would need an AP (anterior posterior view of the forearm) and lateral view
this is a website with good information on the AP view of the forearm
thank you so it would be an AP scan. when you do the findings how would that be worded?
findings would be a proximal third fracture of the radial bone and ulna.
there is good alignment of the bones on AP and lateral view
there is no soft tissue injury.
the history would read fell down stairs and tenderness to elbow??
tenderness of the forearm.
and sometimes numbness of the hand.
also inability to rotate or turn the forearm
so no supination and no pronation
supination is rotation so your palm can hold a bowl of soup
pronation is rotation so your palm is down.
so inability for both supination and also pronation.
does this help
YES IT DOES THANKYOU
you are welcome
do you have other questions?
this is another good website
SO IT WOULD BE A STRAIGHT AP XRAY
no, a lateral xray is also needed of the forarm.
and a lateral xray is also needed of the elbow.
to check for elbow dislocation.
because with forarm fractures you have to check for elbow dislocation.
and a wrist xray is also need to check for wrist fractures.
because with forearm fractures you can have wrist fractures.
do you have other questions.
