Anatomic Variation in Volar Tilt of the Scaphoid and Lunate Facet of the Distal Radius

Anatomic Variation in Volar Tilt of the Scaphoid and Lunate Facet of the Distal Radius

This study aimed to investigate the anatomy of the articular surface of the distal radius, in particular measuring the angle between the dorsal and volar rims at several points from radial to ulnar, to ascertain whether volar tilt is uniform between the scaphoid and lunate facet and to explore consistency between standard lateral and ATL views.
