Wide Open - 4/15/2009
What is wrong with this radiograph?

Moderators Response:
This x-ray reveals a widened SL interval or a positive Terry Thomas sign, a small bony fragment on the radial side of the scaphoid as well as the capitate migrating proximally and this will ultimately lead to a SLAC wrist.

Pt appears to have had an LRTI procedure done due to what appears to be an absense of the trapezium in the x ray.

Capitate is pushing proximally, separating scaphoid and lunate, creating a Terry Thomas sign? also looks like capitate is fused to 3rd metacarpal? Some kind of a crush compressing all carpals.
