Checklist

  1. Is everything imaged correctly and suitable for evaluation? (image in multiple directions!)
  2. Is there soft tissue swelling?
  3. General impression of the bone (including osteoporosis, intra-ossal lesions).
  4. Check each cortex. Are there sharp or rounded cortex interruptions?
  5. Secondary signs of a fracture? (asymmetry, abnormal position, periostal response, changes versus old images)
