  • Physical Trauma Case Study

    requirements when handling any patient with physical injuries. I have recently had the opportunity to work such a patient and have learned that these are skills are in part learned with experience, but also with careful guidance from senior technologists. On the morning of Tuesday October 18th, a forty-eight-year-old female patient was admitted into the Emergency department with severe pain in the left arm. According to the patient, she was preparing a meal in slow cooker but in an attempt to keep her pets out of the kitchen she placed a safety gate in the doorway. When she tried to re-enter the kitchen with the gate in place she tripped over it landing on her left arm. Consequently, the patient suffered from a dislocation of the left distal humerus and proximal ulna accompanied by joint effusion. No patient preparation was required for the exam, however the patient was given pain medication prior to the exam. This greatly reduced her discomfort and aided in obtaining the radiographic images. Furthermore, to reduce the patient’s discomfort she was taken to the Radiology department in a wheelchair and remained in the chair for the duration of the examination. In order to conduct the examination as quickly as possible, we all worked together in order to set up the tube, place the IR, and take the exposures. Additionally, to accommodate the patient, the tube and IR were moved into position instead of positioning the patient. This seemingly small adaptation was greatly…

  • Glenohumeral Joint Lab Report

    The articular surfaces of the glenohumeral joint are the head of humerus and glenoid fossa of scapula. The humeral head can be in articulation with the glenoid fossa in any position of joint because the head of the humerus is larger than the glenoid fossa. This relationship is best compared with a golf ball siting on a tee, with stability conferred by static and dynamic…

    second measurement that was taken became the final concluded measurement of 69.3 millimeters. This final concluded measurement being under 74 millimeters points towards the femur belonging to a female figure. The final part of the femur that was measured was the maximum length of the femur. The first calculation noted was 390 millimeters. A second measurement took place and found the final maximum length of the femur which is 385 millimeters. Since the final maximum length is below 405…

  • Glenoid Labral Tear Research Paper

    The Glenoid Labrum: Labral Tear Number Twenty-Two PED161 2 LABRAL TEAR The Glenoid Labrum is a protective disk of fibrocartilage that surrounds and deepens the cavity of the Glenoid. The labrum allows for full range of motion, stability, and cushioning in the shoulder. It is attached to the edge of the shoulder socket and supports the ball of the joint -or the head of the arm bone, known as the humerus- in order to stay in place. When the fibrocartilage of the labrum is torn, it is…

  • Rotator Cuff Case Study

    The teres minor, infraspinatus, supraspinatus, and the subscapularis all are attached to the humerus via their tendons. These tendons are fused together to form the cuff, that in turn, allow for the movement of the shoulder to play sports and do the daily activities that most of us take for granted such as comb our hair. Athletes such as baseball players or swimmers, or lifting heavy weights, to using your arm to break a fall, can cause injury or a tear to the rotator cuff. Another possible…

The deltoid origin is laterally one-third of the clavicle, at the acromion, and at the lower lip of the crest of the spine of the scapula. Its insertion is at the deltoid tuberosity.The pectoralis major origin is medial half of the clavicle and also at the sternum and cartilage of the first through sixth ribs. Its insertion is at the crest of the greater tubercle of the humerus. The latissimus dorsi origin is at the…

  • Forelimbs Lab Report

    animals that are in the subphylum vertebrata. There are several bones that makes up a forelimb includes the radius, ulna, humerus, carpal, metacarpals, and phalanges. The humerus is a single heavy bone which articulates with the body and forms the foundation of the limb; the radius and ulna are lighter and provides support in addition to a greater range of movement (AMNH Plaque). The carpals, metacarpals, and phalanges are farthest away from the body and consist of many smaller bones giving a…

  • Shoulder Joint Lab Report

    joint but a complex arrangement of bones, ligaments and musculotendinous units that called the shoulder girdle. The primary role of the shoulder girdle is to provide a tremendous range of motion for positioning the upper extremity in space. The shoulder girdle also provides power and support for the upper extremity throughout and at the extremes of the range of motion. (19) The shoulder girdle includes three bones (scapula, clavicle, and proximal humerus), three joints (glenohumeral,…
