On the lateral view, the position of the lunate relative to radius and capitate is crucial. 24a and b), the lunate articulates normally with the radius but the capitate is displaced, typically in a dorsal direction, resulting in an empty distal articular surface of the lunate.

The borders of the humeral head and glenoid should appear as two parallel lines. The GHJ space may appear reduced for technical reasons as well as true cartilage loss. Where there is true cartilage loss, there may be secondary findings including subarticular sclerosis and osteophytes. As primary degeneration of the GHJ is uncommon, cartilage loss due to another condition such as rheumatoid arthritis, haemophilia or, rarely, infection should be considered.

Complications include neurovascular injury – including radial nerve damage – which is found in up to 17% of fractures involving the humeral shaft. ABCs systematic assessment Alignment • • • • • GHJ space should be even and no greater than 6 mm On the axial view the GHJ appears as a ‘golf ball on a tee’ On the ‘Y’ view the humeral head should be centred over the junction of the Y shape ACJ alignment – the inferior margins of the acromion and clavicle should be level Check for widening of the ACJ and coracoclavicular distance Check for a horizontal line indicating lipohaemarthrosis of the glenohumeral joint.
