When it is painful to abduct the arm, the ‘Y’ view is a useful alternative, as it requires no shoulder movement. 1 Normal AP right shoulder. 1, Humeral head; 2, greater tuberosity; 3, lesser tuberosity; 4, glenoid fossa; 5, coracoid process; 6, neck of scapula; 7, acromion; 8, lateral end of clavicle. 2 Normal axial shoulder. Note the coracoid process and acromion both project anteriorly. 1, Humeral head; 2, greater tuberosity; 3, lesser tuberosity; 4, glenoid fossa; 5, coracoid process; 6, neck of scapula; 7, acromion; 8, lateral end of clavicle.
Although the CRITOE order is the most common sequence, individual variation does occur. Nevertheless, one part of the sequence never varies: the internal epicondyle always ossiﬁes before the trochlea. This has particular diagnostic relevance to an uncommon, but clinically important, injury involving major displacement of the internal epicondyle ossiﬁcation centre. 1 (a)–(c) Normal anteroposterior view of right elbow and ligaments. 1, Ulna; 2, coronoid process; 3, olecranon; 4, proximal radius; 5, radial tuberosity; 6, radial head; 7, capitellum; 8, trochlea; 9, medial epicondyle; 10, lateral epicondyle; 11, coronoid fossa; 12, olecranon fossa.
Elbow 25 with a dislocation of the elbow joint that reduces spontaneously are the group most at risk. If the medial epicondyle is trapped within the joint, minor but detectable widening of the medial part of the joint will occur. Consequently, the joint’s normal congruity is altered. The trapped epicondyle is rarely seen on an AP projection – it will be seen more clearly on a lateral radiograph. Cartilage and joint The radiocapitellar and coronoidtrochlear joint spaces should be parallel and spaced equally.
