lesson objectives
Lesson Objectives
  • Identify anatomical structures on plain film radiographs
  • Identify the views commonly used to radiograph the skeletal system
  • Utilize a basic search pattern to screen plain film radiographs for pathology
basic rules for interpretation
Basic Rules for Interpretation
  • Plain films are a 2 dimensional gray scale image of a 3 dimensional anatomical structure
  • Four basic densities
    • Metal = very bright (white)
    • Bone = bright (white)
    • Water/soft tissue = (various shades of gray)
    • Air = dark (black)
basic rules for interpretation1
Basic Rules for Interpretation
  • Rule of thumb for radiographs: min. of 2 views that are offset by 90° for any body part
  • ABOLTS search pattern
    • A = anatomy
    • B = breaks or step defects in the cortex
    • O = opacities (ie blastic lesion, impacted fx)
    • L = lucencies (ie lytic lesion, displaced fx)
    • T= trabecular architecture
    • S = soft tissues (swelling, mass, fascial planes)
