Radiography: scapula

icanis

Introduction

  • Conditions affecting the scapula are comparatively rare, but when radiography is necessary, it is not an easy area to show effectively.
  • If general anesthesia is not used, then heavy sedation with analgesia is needed, especially for the craniocaudal projection.
  • A grid is necessary for patients with thickness >10 cm.
  • The film must include the whole bone, must be correctly exposed and developed, and free from movement blur and artefact.
  • The anatomical marker must be clearly visible, along with the patient's identification, the date, and the name of the hospital or practice.

Uses
