💉MONTEGGIA FRACTURE.
🔹
🏥This is a fracture of the proximal third of the ulnar shaft which is associated with the dislocation of the head of the radius.
🔹
💊The mechanism of injury is usually a fall onto an outstretched hand (FOOSH).
🔹
📚The Bado classification is used to sub-divide Monteggia fractures into 4 types.
🔹
☢AP and lateral views of the forearm are required to see a Monteggia fracture. A fracture of the ulnar will be obvious to see along with dislocation of the radial head.
🔹
🔩An open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) is required which involves making an incision and placing plates and screws at the fracture site to stabilise the fracture allowing it to heal.

The liver is normal in size and showed uniform parenchymal echogenicity and echo pattern. No focal hepatic mass lesion is seen. The pancreas and para aortic regions are within normal limits. The spleen is normal in size and parenchymal echo pattern.
The kidney are normal in size, shape and outline. They have good cortical-medullary differentiation. The left kidney shows at least two echogenic structure casting posterior acoustic shadowing near its lower pole suggestive of a calculi. The largest measures about 15mm in length. The left calyceal system are mildly dilated in keeping with hydronephrosis. No intra abdominal mass lesion seen. No ascites. The urinary bladder is within normal limit.
CONCLUSION: left renal calculi with secondary mild hydronephrosis.
ADVICE: IVU is suggested for further evaluation.

💉BENNET'S FRACTURE
🔹
💊This is an example of an intra-articular fracture.It is an unstable fracture of the base of the 1st metacarpal (thumb).
🔹
🏥Caused by any form of trauma down the axis of the 1st metacarpal.
🔹
☢A Bennett’s fracture will show on an x-ray as: a two-piece fracture at the base of 1st metacarpal, intra-articular extension, dorsolateral displacement and a small fragment of the1st metacarpal can continue to articulate with the trapezium.
🔹
🔩An operation called an open reduction and fixation (ORIF) is required which involves making an incision and placing plates and screws at the fracture site to stabilise the fracture allowing it to heal.

Tomorrow is a big day for so many people taking the first step towards their future career.
Radiographers take images of the insides of patients’ bodies to diagnose injury or disease. They also care for and treat people with cancer.
Radiographers look after people who are unwell or in pain, and may be anxious or uncertain about what is going to happen.
They use their wide range of skills and training to deliver a sensitive, patient-focused healthcare service in imaging and radiotherapy.
Take a look at radiography: it's rewarding and challenging.

I love this color combo from RDB!!

Two of our radiography students, Irene and Aimy, have just completed an international placement at Siriraj Hospital, Bangkok 🇹🇭
These placements give our students global experience and a unique insight into how other health care systems work.

What qualifications do I need?
Universities set their own entry requirements so look at their websites for more information. Generally, you'll need:
240 to 300 UCAS tariff points;
Good maths and English GCSE/standard grade passes;
A levels/highers or equivalent in science subjects.
There are 24 universities around the UK approved to offer radiographic education and 14 universities approved to offer radiotherapy education.
Check each university’s specific A level (or equivalent) entry requirements, as there are many differences between courses. Take a look at the SCoR's directory of university courses.

💉PNEUMOTHORAX
🔹
🚑Also known as a collapsed lung when there is air in the pleural space (the space between the lung and the chest wall). You can get a simple pneumothorax and a tension pneumothorax.
🔹
🏥Pneumothoraces can be caused by blunt or penetrating trauma to the chest or by lung diseases such as COPD.
🔹
☢Chest x-rays on full expiration are useful as the lungs will appear whiter on the xray and if a pneumothorax is present it will contrast against this as it will be black.
🔹
💊Tension pneumothoraces (picture 1) will cause mediastinal shift in a certain direction. Other signs of pneumothoraces are a loss of lung markings in the area where it is located as well as a thin sharp white line (picture 2).
🔹
📚A chest drain can be used as treatment or in some cases an operation may be required.

I want to study radiography. What do I need to know?
Study is at degree level and full-time only. Most courses are BSc (Hons) which are three years in length, four in Scotland.
You will spend around half of your time working on clinical placement. This means you’ll be learning by working in a real hospital department, with real patients.
Each university course varies but core subjects include communication skills, oncology or digital imaging, anatomy, treatment or imaging techniques, radiation physics and research methods.
