Subtle fracture, one view, small image, crappy computer screen. Lets see how good you are. :)

My eyes are initially drawn toward the hamate where it borders the lunate. Maybe at the distal kind of lateral navicular? I can't really tell though.

I've never really understood how radiologists can easily look at radiographs and read them without a decent chunk of history - you know, like in this case... fell on outstretched hand or hit with blunt object. LOL

Looks like there's a little somethin' somethin' at the medial hamate.

BTW, what's the brighter white area also on the hamate? Assuming it's the hook of the hamate, but someone please correct me if I'm wrong...

The 1st proximal phalynx looks like it has a fx right at the joint line, on the ulnar side.

I agree something like a fx at the medial hamate. Im also curious about the ulnar side of the 1st proximal phalanx.

ditto, would have to say this would not be the view to look at the hammate, but that proximal side does look like small fx., was looking for somse soft tissue swelling to give this away, but cannot find it, let me ask you this though. Seeing the Fx or not seeing the Fx, would your treatment differ?

The perfect example of why one should always have 2 views. Is that the same person? LOL

I was looking at the first view. But is IceBox Days this week so maybe I had a brain freeze.

seriously, I think I see a fracture at the anterior base of the middle phalanx of the third finger (even in the first view...)- appropriately positioned for our drivers here...

I see it as well. Were we close or far off Alex?

There is a nondisplaced, incomplete, oblique fracture through the palmar aspect of the base of the third middle phalanx with mild adjacent soft tissue swelling. No other osseous or soft tissue abnormalities are noted.
