Example text

The patient turns onto the side, as described above, so the beam could travel AP or PA through the patient and the IR is centred to include all the chest when collimated. The image is preferably taken on arrested inspiration. Ensure the patient is elevated from the table or trolley surface so a full evaluation of any fluid levels can be made. Thoracic inlet ANTEROPOSTERIOR PROJECTION The patient is supine or erect in true AP position, with chin raised. Centre a perpendicular IR to the sternal notch and collimate to tracheal and mediastinal areas.

ANTEROPOSTERIOR PROJECTION OF HEAD OF RADIUS Slightly flex the patient’s elbow, resting on the point of the joint to rotate externally approximately 30° so the head of the radius is tangential to a vertical IR centred to the skin crease. See also: Capitellum projection (Berquist method), Coyle trauma methods, Tomas and Proubasta – radial head, Tuberosity view – elbow. ULNAR GROOVE (SUPERO-INFERIOR) PROJECTION Seat the patient with their back to the table. e. resting on the elbow. The humerus should form an angle of 25–30° to the vertical.

LATERAL DECUBITUS PROJECTION Rarely used in the chest today as CT is able to reveal more information about fluid compared with plain images. The image receptor is held in an erect stand or bucky and horizontal IR centred to it. The patient turns onto the side, as described above, so the beam could travel AP or PA through the patient and the IR is centred to include all the chest when collimated. The image is preferably taken on arrested inspiration. Ensure the patient is elevated from the table or trolley surface so a full evaluation of any fluid levels can be made.
