In the past, radiographs of the hand have been described as the “skeleton’s calling card”, showing manifestations of many different diseases. As hand and wrist imaging has become increasingly sophisticated, this observation has become more true than ever. This is a comprehensive, up-to-date textbook on imaging of the hand and wrist. In the first part of the book, the various imaging techniques are discussed in detail. Individual chapters are devoted to radiography, ultrasound, CT, MRI and nuclear medicine. The second part of the book gives an authoritative review of the various pathologies that may be encountered in the hand and wrist, encompassing congenital and developmental abnormalities, trauma, and the full range of localized and systemic disorders. Each chapter is written by an acknowledged expert in the field, and a wealth of illustrative material is included. This book will be of great value to musculoskeletal and general radiologists, orthopaedic surgeons and rheumatologists.

The main emphasis of this chapter is a description of basic radiography of the wrist and hand with detailed description of radiographic technique and evaluation of the different projections. Static and dynamic carpal instability evaluation is vital for the assessment of ligamentous disruption.
These techniques are covered in this chapter. There are a whole variety of measurement techniques which can be used in the assessment of wrist pathology. Following distal radial fracture, radial inclination, radial length and palmar tilt are important. Ulna variance is also assessed followingdistal radial fracture and in the context of ulnarsided wrist pain. The scapholunate angle and capitate lunate angle are assessed when intercalated instability is suspected. Finally, the carpal height is a measurement which is applied when there is evidence of carpal collapse or loss of joint space. Arthrography still has a place in the modern assessment of the wrist. Radiocarpal and to a lesser extent midcarpal injection techniques may be employed
